Euroleague Basketball is also in continuous contact with all 2019-20 Turkish Airlines EuroLeague and 7DAYS EuroCup teams that are or may be affected by this exceptional situation. Euroleague Basketball has been forced to temporarily suspend the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague and 7DAYS EuroCup games in Italy at least until April 11 and to relocate those games to other territories.

  • AX Armani Exchange Milan EuroLeague Regular Season Round 34 against CSKA Moscow.
  • Segafredo Virtus Bologna EuroCup Quarterfinals Game 2 against AS Monaco.
