The Euroleague Considers Expanding to Dubai
The Euroleague was already visiting the Dubai facilities a year ago.
Key Vote to Determine Euroleague’s Future
Next Monday will be a crucial day for the Euroleague as the clubs that own the tournament will gather to vote on whether to extend the competition to Dubai. This proposal, which has been under consideration for some time, could have significant implications for the league’s future.
Weighing the Pros and Cons
After careful deliberation, the Euroleague faces the decision of whether to pursue or abandon the project. Expanding to Dubai would bring about a substantial economic boost for the competition, but it would also come with certain commitments. These commitments include hosting the Final Four in Dubai and potentially including a team from the city in the tournament. However, such changes would not take effect until the 2024-25 academic year.
