Friday’s game between Italy and Romania at the 4,500-seater Palaruffini (Turin) is sold out, with fans eager to see the Azzurri host their opener in the Group.
“It’s a great honor, I’m proud to have been named the captain,” Pietro Aradori said for FIBA. “I know I have responsibilities, that I need to help everyone, especially the younger players that are playing for the first time in the national team.”
Also, more than 3,000 tickets have been sold in Nizhny Novgorod and the match of Russia against Belgium where we’ll also have a full house.
Russia Basketball Federation President Andrei Kirilenko commented that, We are happy that the first-ever Russian national team game in Nizhny Novgorod has drawn so much interest with the local fans“.
