Israeli champions Maccabi Tel Aviv will hold its upcoming Euroleague home games in Belgrade due to the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas, Maccabi said in a statement on Tuesday, citing the Euroleague Basketball (EB) decision.
Maccabi’s upcoming home game against Real Madrid in Round 6, originally scheduled for Nov. 2, was postponed to an unspecified date.
The Israelis’ following four home games, against Bayern Munich, Olympiacos Piraeus, Barcelona, and Alba Berlin will be played on their scheduled dates later in November at the Aleksandar Nikolic Hall in Serbia’s capital.
“Maccabi has received the support of the Belgrade Municipality and the Serbian Government and will engage in conversations to plan the necessary security measures,” said the EB decision.
“EB will continue to monitor the evolution of the situation, staying in contact with all related parties, and will announce any modifications if necessary,” it concluded.
