On December 14, 2012 Zalgiris hosted Anadolu Efes on the last day of Euroleague’s regular season. But it wasn’t just a fight between Lithuanian and Turkish clubs that took place in Zalgirio Arena.
While the two teams battled on the court for the win (at least Zalgiris did) one guy in the crowd was anxiously waiting for the first time out in the second quarter.
Serkan, who is Turkish, arranged that time with Zalgiris management so that he could propose to his Lithuanian girlfriend Egle in front of 15,000 spectators. He proposed in Lithuanian.
As it turns out, at the beginning of the relationship the couple went to see Zalgiris host Khimki in the old Sports Hall back in 2010. That’s why Serkan’s decision to propose to Egle during a game between Zalgiris and Anadolu Efes was an obvious one.
Serkan broke the ice and became the first person to propose in Zalgirio Arena. The couple plans to marry next summer in Kaunas. Congratulations!
