Moment of silence to be held before BCL games

MIES (Switzerland) - A moment of silence, as a mark of respect for the victims of violence during the recent events in Israel and the wider region, will be observed before all games of the opening week of the Basketball Champions League, on Tuesday and Wednesday 17th and 18th of October.

The Basketball Champions League family condemns all acts of violence and is saddened by the loss of life and destruction that has affected so many people, including some of our fans, players and coaches.

Our thoughts continue to be with the families of the victims during these unprecedented times.
