For the first time, Cologne, Germany will be the host of the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Final Four (2020). Lanxess Arena will be the venue and battleground where four of Europe’s top teams will take to the hardwood to compete for Europe’s most prestigious basketball title on May 22nd to 24th.
Cologne is the second German city to host the event. Berlin hosted the EuroLeague Final Four in 2009 and 2016.
“To open a new decade dedicated to bringing the EuroLeague to new fans, we are proud to choose Cologne as our next Final Four host,” Jordi Bertomeu, President and CEO of Euroleague Basketball, said. “After Prague in 2006, Paris in 2010 and London in 2013, we again bring the continent’s biggest basketball event to a new place where our sport has thrived so that fans there can see the best basketball in Europe where they live. At the same time, we could not have chosen a better arena or a more vibrant, welcoming city for the many fans who will travel to the Final Four from around the world.”
