When Gran Canaria beat Turk Telekom Ankara to lift the EuroCup trophy at the beginning of May, Jaka Lakovic’s team secured a spot in next season’s Turkish Airlines EuroLeague. However, the Spanish team is still uncertain whether to participate in the competition next year or not.
Due to the large distance from the other EuroLeague participants, the high amount of money needed to build a well-equipped roster, and the latest painful EuroLeague experience, which had repercussions on the performance of the club in the following seasons as well, Gran Canaria may move out from the EuroLeague to join the Basketball Champions League, where neighbors Lenovo Tenerife has been playing for years now.
Today, Gran Canaria decided to share a message to its season-ticket holders, related to the participation in next year’s EuroLeague, underlining that the prices for those tickets would increase by a 70% rate if Jaka Lakovic’s side will end up playing in the best European competition.
Also, Gran Canaria said in the statement that “they have been working on this possibility for months now” and that “their work on finding the right resources has been mainly centered on one official sponsor, other private and public sponsors, and the support of the fans”.
