Report in Spain: Maccabi threatens to retire from the Euroleague

Report in Spain: Maccabi Tel Aviv, Olympiacos and Panathinaikos are threatening to retire from the Euroleague and move to the FIBA ​​Champions League. The reason: exacerbation of controversy among Euroleague teams over the plant’s revenue model.

According to the El Mundo Deportivo report, the Euroleague is divided into two camps – the clubs that support Jordi Bartomeu led by Barcelona, ​​Real and Basconia, and the bloc that opposes it, led by Maccabi Tel Aviv and the two Greeks.

At the center of the controversy: the teams’ dissatisfaction with the Euroleague’s ability to generate greater revenue. According to the report, the heads of the opposing bloc raised in internal talks the possibility of moving to the Champions League, where the revenue model is becoming more attractive for the teams.

Despite the report – it is very difficult to see Maccabi Tel Aviv leave the factory it built with its own hands along with 10 other teams. All the armored teams have an agreement with the Euroleague until 2026 and leaving it involves a fine of 10 million euros.
