Darussafaka Tekfen Istanbul-Segafredo Virtus Bologna EuroCup game suspended
The Darussafaka Tekfen Istanbul-Segafredo Virtus Bologna game for Round 6 of the 2019-20 7DAYS EuroCup Top 16 has been suspended due to the impossibility for the away team, Segafredo Virtus Bologna, to enter into Turkish territory.

Euroleague Basketball has taken this decision due to the Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs restricting access to the country for any individual that has traveled to Italy during the previous 14 days. Euroleague Basketball is in the process of evaluating alternative arenas in other countries as well as alternative dates to reschedule the suspended game. The details will be announced in the coming days.
