Euroleague Basketball statement on the occasion of the incidents occurred at the Olympiacos Piraeus - AS Monaco Playoffs Game 5
Euroleague Basketball would like to strongly condemn the acts that took place during the last minutes of Game 5 of the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Playoffs between Olympiacos Piraeus and AS Monaco.

The lack of security during the game led to a court invasion with the game in progress, forcing the officiating crew to pause the game until the minimum safety conditions were recovered. Other serious security breaches, including the use of flares, lasers and firecrackers, were also observed by Euroleague Basketball. The relevant bodies will carefully review all evidence and take all the pertinent measures.

Euroleague Basketball would like to stress that the above incidents do not represent the values that the organization stands for, in particular those of enjoying the EuroLeague experience in a safe and friendly environment.
