Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Regular Season Round 4 LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne - Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade game will not take place
The Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Regular Season Round 4 game between LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne and Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade that was scheduled to be played on Thursday, October 15, will not take place. Multiple players from LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne have tested positive for COVID-19, leaving the team without the minimum eight players on the Authorisation List fit to play.

A procedure has been opened that will be evaluated by the Disciplinary Judge who will make a decision in due course in accordance with the 2020–21 Euroleague Basketball Special Regulations due to COVID-19, following the article 6 of the mentioned regulations:

“If one or more players/coaching staff/team followers of a club test positive for COVID-19, the game will take place as scheduled unless the national or local authorities of one or both clubs involved or of the place where the game will be held (in case of a neutral country) require a large group of players or the entire team to go into quarantine. If at least eight players on the Authorisation List are fit to play, the game must go ahead on the scheduled date and location. The club that cannot play the game will be held responsible for the game not taking place and the Disciplinary Judge will declare that its team loses by the result of zero to twenty (0-20) and, when applicable, the playoff series. A recidivism originated from or due to positive tests in a team will not entail the disqualification from the competition. (...)”
