Euroleague Final Four 2019

By Chris Dinsdale

May 17, 2019 - May 19, 2019 - The Euroleague Final Four, Europe’s premier basketball event, takes place at the Fernando Buesa Arena in Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain. The opening semi-final features an all Turkish encounter, as 2018 finalists Fenerbahce take on Anadolu Efes, who are in the Final Four for the first time since 2001. The second semi-final is a heavyweight clash between seven-time champions CSKA Moscow against 10-time winners Real Madrid, the reigning champions.

The EuroLeague is the Europe-wide top-tier level professional basketball club competition, organised since 2000 by Euroleague Basketball for eligible European basketball clubs. The Final Four format was introduced in 2002.

Real Madrid are the most successful team in the tournament’s history, appearing in 18 finals and winning a record 10 titles, the first of which came in 1964. In the last five years, Madrid have featured in four finals, securing the Euroleague trophy in 2015 and again in 2018, when they defeated Fenerbahce by a score of 85-80.
