FRANKFURT (Germany) - The Basketball Champions League hosted its annual Head Coach and Referee Workshop Wednesday in Frankfurt, Germany.
The workshop was attended by Head Coaches of the teams that qualified directly to the Regular Season and referees of the Basketball Champions League.

It served the purpose to create a forum where opinions can be discussed, experiences shared, evaluations and suggestions collected.

I am therefore delighted to welcome our Head Coaches and referees in Frankfurt. This workshop is paramount in safeguarding a consistent delivery at all Basketball Champions League games. It also provides the opportunity to discuss and listen to the coaches' opinion, which will certainly help us develop our competition further" said Patrick Comninos, CEO of the Basketball Champions League.
