Per the French newspaper L’Equipe, Paris is the favourite to host the 2020 EuroLeague Final Four at the AccorHotels Arena.

According to the report, Athens will not host the Final Four in 2020, but remains a candidate for 2021. The situation is similar for Paris and Kaunas, which are also candidates to host the event in 2020 and 2021.

That said, Paris now has the upper hand to host the event; the official announcement by the competition is expected within the next few weeks.

The EuroLeague Final Four has taken place in Paris three times over the past 23 years, namely in 1996, 2001 and 2010.
