The EB competitions bring the elite of European basketball to all five continents through its broadcasting partners, and to the entire sports community through the OTT platform EuroLeague TV. EB also organizes a series of impactful community and educational programs. Its ground- breaking corporate social responsibility program One Team features all EB clubs and has already made a difference in the lives of over 19,000 participants. Its grassroots program EuroLeague Academy develops basketball tournaments across various cities in EuroLeague territories. Its Sports Business MBA trains future professionals in sports management.
