Ensuring a fun, welcoming and safe atmosphere for all people attending Turkish Airlines EuroLeague and 7DAYS EuroCup games will be the focus of several new measures that have been put in place by Euroleague Basketball for the coming season, including the introduction of the new Euroleague Basketball In-Arena Code of Conduct.

The EB In-Arena Code of Conduct and the other league-wide collective initiatives, regulations and standards that will be deployed in the coming months are aimed at standardizing the fan experience across all arenas at top-quality levels and making it second-to-none in the world of sports.

The code of conduct was approved by all EuroLeague and EuroCup clubs over the summer. The key principles in the code of conduct are to show respect to all fans, players, coaches and staff, referees and arena personnel; to refrain from abusive, disruptive and/or foul language and behavior; to never disrupt or interfere with the normal operations of the arena or the game being played; and to comply with requests from arena or club personnel regarding arena policies and emergency procedures.

Anyone who witnesses a failure to adhere to the code of conduct is encouraged to report such violations to security personnel and/or through any other channel made available by the home club. Euroleague Basketball is also in the process of establishing a reporting mechanism. To preserve an enjoyable and safe environment for all, Euroleague Basketball, clubs and local authorities reserve the right to expel any person who violates the Code of Conduct, as well as to deny entry to any arena.

Security personnel from Euroleague Basketball are in the process of visiting cities with EuroLeague and/or EuroCup teams to meet with the local clubs, authorities and security bodies in each. Over the past week, Euroleague Basketball staff have held preparation meetings in the cities of Athens, Istanbul and Belgrade to meet with the EuroLeague and EuroCup clubs, arena management, private security companies, public authorities and police. The code of conduct was discussed in the meetings, as were the measures needed to prevent the recurrence of security incidents, hence ensuring the best possible atmosphere during games for all people attending to enjoy.

Euroleague Basketball will monitor the implementation of the in-arena code of conduct across all games in both competitions.

"We want to provide an unforgettable experience for everyone who attends a EuroLeague or EuroCup game, regardless of the result on the night," said Eduard Scott, Chief Operating Officer at Euroleague Basketball. "To do that, we value the support of all relevant stakeholders to create a great environment for our games."
