Shay Shtriks: Let′s enjoy the Finals after a very interesting season
We are about to finish the 8th season in the Balkan League. The Sports director of the competition Shay Shtriks had this to say before next week′s first game of the Finals between KB Sigal Prishtina and KK Mornar:
"SIGAL-UNIQA Balkan League Finals season 2015 - 16 start next week and I would like to wish the 2 teams KK Mornar and KB Sigal Prishtina to have high-level basketball event, strong and quality games which will be supported by very good, correct and fair officiating.
Here it is the place to send to all the other seven teams and four Federations congratulations and thank you for very good cooperation during the season. We hope to see them also in the next season 2016-2017 with us.
I am very happy to say that the new system in season 2015-16 was very successful. Season Nr. 8 of SIGAL-UNIQA Balkan League was a very interesting and very challenging one. We had to find a new system for 9 clubs after the 10th team withdrew in the last moment for the league, the idea was to provide the best and fair system to all clubs. We managed to do it in the best way - First stage, Qualification games, Top 8 and the finals, and games proved it to be very interesting and challenging system. We faced a lot of interesting games, dramas and most importantly - quality basketball. Most of the gyms were full and the spectators enjoyed almost every moment. The officiating in most of the games was very good and correct, and no game was decided by referees. The two best teams this season qualified to the finals.
I would like to say big THANK YOU to all the staff of the Balkan League. They have been working every day during the year to support and provide all the clubs the best possible conditions and service so they can concentrate only on basketball.
During the 8th consecutive season of BIBL our new main sponsor SIGAL UNIQA with Mr. Avni Ponari supported our project in the best way. All the other companies belonging to EUROHOLD have been standing behind us and continue to support the League. We could not give those very good conditions as an international league without the support of Mr. Avni Ponari and Mr. Assen Christov, without the managements of SIGAL UNIQA and EUROHOLD. I do hope to continue with this great collaboration in the years to come as well. Developing BIBL in the best and most professional way has always been and will be our main goal.
Big thank you deserve also the people from Sport Media, the TV channels-partners in the different countries and other media supporting the Balkan League throughout the years. 70% of the games of season 2015-16 were broadcast live in the TV and 100% of the games were broadcast in our Internet TV Sport Media. Our target for the next season is 90% of the games to be live in TV and 100% in Sport Media.
The target for the next season is to have 12 clubs and 5-7 Balkan Federations, staying with the same system and using the same principle for the calendar, with the cooperation of the national federations.
Now comes the time to enjoy the 2 great final games between KK Mornar and KB Sigal Prishtina and let the best team win!"
