EuroLeague games to be played behind closed doors

A selection of this week’s EuroLeague games will be played behind closed doors due to the coronavirus scare.

As first reported by Italian journalist Luca Guazzoni, Tuesday’s game between Olimpia Milano and Real Madrid will be restricted to arena staff, players and coaching staff only.

Fans and journalists will not be allowed into the arena.

Along with Milano and Real Madrid, it has also been reported that Tuesday’s game between ASVEL and Valencia will also be played closed doors.

Like Italy, France is also in the midst of a coronavirus outbreak, with 100 cases reported and two deaths.

Globally, more than 85,500 cases have been conformed with the death toll over 2,900.
