Darussafaka’s game against Virtus Bologna, that was planned to be played at Volkswagen Arena on Wednesday (4/3), but was suspended due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus in Italy, will be finally played at the Stark Arena in Belgrade on Thursday (5/3).

The game was suspended by Euroleague Basketball due to the impossibility for the away team, Segafredo Virtus Bologna, to enter into Turkish territory, as stated in EuroCup’s announcement.

At the request of the Serbian Health Ministry, the game will be played behind closed doors to guarantee the safety and security of participating players, coaches and referees, and to avoid the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
