The upcoming Hapoel Tel Aviv – London Lions game is subject to multiple changes.

By Eurohoops team/

EuroCup Basketball announced that the upcoming match between Hapoel Tel Aviv and the London Lions is going to be held at the latter’s home court due to the situation in Israel.

Per EuroCup:

The BKT EuroCup Regular Season Round 5 game between Hapoel Shlomo Tel Aviv and the London Lions will be played in London instead of Tel Aviv, with the contest now taking place at 19:30 local time (GMT) on Thursday, November 2 instead of on Wednesday, November 1.

This decision has been taken considering the impossible nature of hosting games in Tel Aviv due to security concerns derived from the ongoing armed conflict in the area.

Euroleague Basketball (EB) has requested that Hapoel Shlomo Tel Aviv present an alternative arena located out of Israel to host its upcoming BKT EuroCup home games.
