Athens to host Euroleague Basketball December 11, 2006

Posted by grhomeboy in Basketball.

Europe’s premier basketball competition, Euroleague Basketball, was founded in 2000 under a private organisational model that is considered a breakthrough for European professional team sports. The competition features 24 clubs from 12 or more countries per season and crowns its champion each spring at the Euroleague Final Four, one of the signature events of European sports.

The 2007 Euroleague Final Four will take place 4-6 May 2007 in Athens, Greece.

Basketball in Europe has experienced spectacular growth in recent years, along with the development of Euroleague Basketball. In just six years, Euroleague Basketball has consolidated a competition of the highest sporting level, has introduced the concept of a professional league to Europe and has expanded its television reach beyond Europe, where 100 percent of all Euroleague Basketball games were televised in 2005-06, with coverage reaching all five continents. Euroleague Basketball attendance has increased 82% from the inaugural 2000-01 season.
