After careful study and consultation with all clubs and partners involved, Euroleague Basketball establishes the definitive schedule of games at the 2011 Turkish Airlines Euroleague Final Four taking into consideration the legal concerns of one of the qualified teams, Maccabi Electra Tel Aviv. With the schedule changes the Final Four games will be as follows:
The new tipoff time for the title game is 2 hours sooner than the scheduled local time of the earliest recent final, which was 18:40 at the 2005 Final Four in Moscow.
Euroleague Basketball would like to thank all parties and partners involved in understanding the situation and assisting us in reaching a general consensus on this decision. Two concerns have been paramount throughout the decision-making process: basketball integrity and fan enjoyment. Euroleague Basketball has made sure that the best teams this season, as proven on the court, will compete for the Euroleague title at the Final Four. Euroleague Basketball remains fully ready to offer fans all the fun we have prepared for them inside and outside Palau Sant Jordi.
