EuroLeague Basketball’s One Team program continues with its activities. This time they’ve got something special prepared for the Round 9 EuroCup and Round 12 EuroLeague games held on December 11-14.
The 20 games in the two competitions will showcase the program, with every EuroLeague player showing his support by proudly wearing One Team on the back of his shirt instead of his own name. Every home club will also stage a series of special events to celebrate the program, including One Team participants and athletes from Special Olympics taking part in on-court pre-game ceremonies.
Kyle Hines – the program’s Global Ambassador and CSKA Moscow center – is delighted to shine the spotlight on One Team during Thursday’s local derby with Khimki Moscow Region: “It’s very exciting to take a part in the annual One Team Game for the EuroLeague. It has been great to see how the One Team project has continued to grow. Players every year look forward to these games to show our support for One Team and to highlight the mission of the project all around the world. We are all thankful for the opportunity to give back and show support for the people in need in our communities.”
Along with current stars like Hines, former greats like Dimitris Diamantidis, a Euroleague Basketball Legend, have signed up to support One Team: “I have been amazed by the variety of activities going on all over Europe. It’s great to see the sport I love making such a positive impact upon people’s lives. I am really looking forward to playing my part during the One Team Games and into the future.”
