EuroLeague - Maneuvers for a 18-team championship
Acceleration of EuroLeague expansion programs. Although the words denied until yesterday, today, in a meeting with the Greek press, Jordi Bertomeu, managing director, has admitted that this could happen from the 2018-19 season: "The clubs will vote if we can have 18 teams for the 2018-19 season". Certainly this will not help rally the souls in the war against FIBA, indeed. Expanding candidates would be the winning team of the French championship and the Eurocup 2017-18 finalist (loser).
