In the pre-dawn hours of Monday, February 6, a terrifying earthquake struck Turkiye and Syria, killing and injuring tens of thousands of people and leaving many more homeless.
While our thoughts are with all those affected by the earthquake and its heart-rending consequences, Euroleague Basketball would like to encourage everyone to help them by cooperating with United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and OXFAM.

Before all this week's Turkish Airlines EuroLeague and 7DAYS EuroCup games, a moment of silence will be held to honor the earthquake victims. Euroleague Basketball also decided to postpone the One Team Games celebration planned for this week in all EuroLeague and EuroCup arenas out of respect for those affected by the tragedy.
