BC Beroe did not register yet to the BIBL
Although some Bulgarian media published today that the BIBL 2016-2017 champion - BC Beroe will participate in few competitions amongst which is also the Balkan League, the Sports Director Mr. Shtriks declared this is only rumors as neither the club itself nor the Bulgarian Federation has contacted under any form the League.
Earlier in May, BC Beroe officially informed SIGAL UNIQA Balkan League they were not having intentions to continue and what is confirmed for now is they are in the Qualifying Round for the FIBA Europe Cup competition.
BC Academic Bultex 99 is the first Bulgarian participant to register 2 days ago while most probably the second place would be taken by an old-friend in the face of BC Levski 2014. After Titi Papazov announced several days ago that he returns to the coaching, Mr. Shtriks and him had a meeting and discussed in details the possibility of his young team to take part again.
It looks like that in the following days BC Levski 2014 will apply officially also through the Bulgarian Federation. Nevertheless, having in mind that during season 2016-2017 there were more than 2 teams from several countries, the option of BC Beroe, the Champion of BIBL, if they contact and register on time is logic and realistic.
Always the Balkan League will be happy to have members the good, young teams from each country.
