    Default Euroleague Final 4 2022 (Stark Arena- Belgrade, 19-21 May)

    Thanks to Worrax for reminding me to make a Final 4 topic.

    One thing I wasn't aware of- apparently the semi finals are on a Thursday and the final is on the Saturday? Did EL discuss this change or was it partly due to having to move the F4 to a different country only a couple of months ago?

    Congrats to all the teams involved and to their fans after another strange and challenging season. It's going to be interesting to see which of them Interbasket members select as their favourites!

    Greek fans have bought 45% of the tickets. 16% were bought by Spanish fans, so I guess Barca and Real will have about 8% each. Only 5% went to fans from Turkey, 5% to Serbia and for some reason 6% were boaught by fans in Israel.

    I intimated as much in the other thread but with the above disparity in support this F4 desperately needs strong referees.

    Those were the countries with the top 5 sales, leaving about 29% of tickets bought elsewhere. I suppose it’s possible that diaspora sales might narrow the gap, eg Turks in Germany and elsewhere, but even allowing for that Olympiakos are going to be the best supported team by far. This gives Olympiakos an unfair advantage, I just hope the referees aren’t intimidated and stay strong.

    Olympiacos played its last two finals in Madrid against Real and in Istanbul against Fener, so it would be nice to have the fans on our side for a change.

    1. It's not an unfair advantage. Tickets were available to everyone. As Pero mentioned, when the home team is playing it's natural that they'll have the majority of the tickets (for various reasons that are obvious). Now the F4 is in a place that very easily and cheaply accessible from Greece. Nothing unfair about this.

    2. Are you really going to play the ref card without having seen a single minute of a game? Like what? Do you think Oly has been favored by refs in the past especially against teams like Real, Barca, and Efes? Come on now, that's just reaching.
