Jordi Bertomeu, Executive Director of the Euroleague, appeared before the media taking advantage of his presence in the Eurocup match that faced Virtus Bologna and Unics Kazan in the semifinals of the continental tournament.
The Catalan manager drew the future guidelines for the Euroleague: “Between now and the 23/24 season, we want the Euroleague to have 16-18 teams with a multi-year license to play in the competition. “
Bertomeu also spoke of the breadth of the calendar and used as a model what happens in football to justify the large number of games that there are throughout a season: “The Champions League is playing more and more games and that is the way that we want to carry in the future. “
Finally, the head of the Euroleague spoke about the two invitations to next season’s tournament: “Next year there will be two wild-card invitations to play in the Euroleague, but none of them will be for Italian teams”
