New Mediterranean League
#1
I heard that the owners of Olympiacos are working on starting a new big international league, called the "Mediterranean League".

The goal of the new Mediterranean League is to replace the Spanish ACB League as the premiere regional/domestic league in Europe and to improve the level and quality of competition for the clubs participating in the league, versus what they currently have in their national domestic leagues.

The new league would include clubs such as Lottomatica Roma, Armani Milano, Montepaschi Siena, Olympiacos Piraeus, Panathinaikos Athens, Aris Thessaloniki, Fenerbache Ulker, Efes Pilsen, Maccabi Tel Aviv and others.

The clubs would also have to play their home games in a 5,000 seat arena.

Maccabi? really? no one said anything about it in Israel.

but I still don't get it..is it suppose to be instead of the Israeli league for Maccabi for example?

or is it like...the Adriatic league for Partizan who also took part of the Serbian league and the euroleague?

The clubs would play Mediterranean League as their new domestic league. Then they would enter into their national leagues at the playoffs and the national cups would still be played. So basically, the same way that the Adriatic League is designed.

I would assume that Maccabi would automatically be placed into the semifinals or finals of the Israeli League.

I think they mean possibly 2010-11, most likely 2011-12.
