Basketball lovers and the general public are invited to immerse themselves in one of the largest fan-based events in sports at the official EuroLeague FanZone, which will be held at Unity Square in Kaunas, Lithuania, during the coming weekend's 2023 Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Final Four!
The EuroLeague FanZone at Unity Square will be open from 10:00 to 23:00 local time between Friday, May 19, and Sunday, May 21, and at just a 13-minute walk from Zalgirio Arena, the FanZone, promises all the basketball fun you can hope for around Friday's semifinals and Sunday's championship game. No tickets are required, so everyone can enjoy the festivities and create unforgettable memories.
Even before the FanZone officially opens, some lucky fans can get in on the action there with limited-edition tickets for the 2023 Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Final Four Tipoff Event, for which the protagonists from the would-be title teams – AS Monaco, FC Barcelona, Olympiacos Piraeus and Real Madrid – will take the stage. Apply for tickets here.
If you can't get into the Tipoff Event, don't worry. Final Four stars and EuroLeague Ambassadors will visit the Unity Square on Saturday amid non-stop special activities culminating in the FanZone Concerts, a pair of live music shows featuring Beatrich and DJ Jovani.
Performing first will be 25-year-old Lithuanian pop/rock star Beatrich at 22:00 local time. Beatrich burst onto the scene by winning the 2017 Lithuanian Music Association Awards for Best New Act and Song of the Year, "Superstar". Beatrich, who currently resides in London, released her first studio album, Songs About You, last year.
DJ Jovani will follow Beatrich's at 21:15 local time. With over half a million followers across social media and over 100 million YouTube views, DJ Jovani is one of the fastest-growing music professionals in Europe. He has performed around the world and has DJ residencies in Dublin, London and Chicago. Both concerts are free of charge.
Of course, each day at the FanZone will include plenty of basketball, with tournaments and contests to watch and participate in. These include:
