Following the addition of Bilbao, Darussafaka, and Rytas Vilnius to the fifth season of Basketball Champions League, FIBA has also contacted Partizan, Buducnost and Cedevita Olimpija from the Adriatic League to join the competition.

Partizan President Ostoja Mijajlovic commented on the matter and clarified that EuroLeague remains a priority for the team.

“EuroLeague is the priority for Partizan, we will think about the rest, “ Mijajlovic told briefly.

EuroLeague’s plan for the 2020-21 season includes, apart from the 11 licensed clubs and the two associated Wild Cards (ASVEL Villeurbanne, FC Bayern Munich), three associated Wild Cards, with the Adriatic League Champion to have priority for one of the three. Partizan finished on top of the ABA league standings prior to the season lockdown and had sealed a place to the playoffs.
