During the Round 29 meeting in the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague between Anadolu Efes Istanbul and Partizan Mozzart Bet Belgrade at Sinan Erdem Sports Hall, the officials were, perhaps unsurprisingly, at the center of it all.

Now, you can step into the action by hearing the three referees from that Round 29 game – Miguel Angel Perez, Robert Vyklicky, and Ioannis Foufis – enjoy some banter with some of the players before watching how they called the game on the floor.

There were certain disagreements with some players, as well as some laughs along the way. All the while, the protagonists were never shy about voicing opinions to the officials.

I used a challenge for nothing,” Efes head coach Ergin Ataman lamented.

Fans in the EuroLeague are now able to feel a part of the action with this new feature, which is part of Euroleague Basketball’s continued commitment to reducing the gap between fans in the arena and those tuning in from the comfort of their own homes.

Fans can also follow live audio of the referees for each Instant Replay revision during all games, as well as during selected timeouts.
