5 countries, 10 teams visited in 13 days… After few days in Lyon and Malaga visiting Euroleague newcomers LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne, ALBA Berlin and Zenit St. Petersburg, ELPA Management was back on the road for a successful second round of team meetings.

FC Barcelona, Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade, Panathinaikos OPAP Athens, AX Armani Exchange Milan, Olympiacos Piraeus, Fenerbahce Beko Istanbul, Anadolu Efes Istanbul, CSKA Moscow, Khimki Moscow Region and Zalgiris Kaunas were the team visited during pre-season in Barcelona, Athens, Istanbul, Moscow and Kaunas.

« We are very satisfied with our visits during the last 3 weeks. All 13 teams we visited so far have shown big support to ELPA and a lot of enthusiasm about what we will together achieve in the future. Players appreciate changes for players, that were achieved during negotiations in the last 12 months, but everyone also realizes that we are just getting started and that there is still a lot of work to be done. I would also like to use this opportunity to wish all players a healthy and successful basketball season », Managing Director Bostjan Nachbar said.

Players stepped up during the meetings, exchanged ideas, and learned more about the recent improvements. Important feedbacks were gathered through the weeks.

« I played in NBA 10 years, I’ve been a member of NBPA for 10 years. I think it’s a long time coming for the Euroleague to do the same thing with ELPA. I’m excited to join ELPA now. In a short amount of time, ELPA got a lot done. It’s only gonna bet better obviously. The more players that sign up, the more players that join, our voice is gonna get heard. And it’s just gonna make a better league », said Khimki Moscow player Jonas Jerebko.

ELPA Management will be back on the road in few days as five teams remain to be visited.
