"We had COVID-19, PCR Tests, Border Control, Quarantine, Lockdown, Flight changes in the last moments, Players positive, Referees positive BUT we had and we have the most POSITIVE and strong people. Players, Coaches. Team members. Referees. League staff - all of them are the biggest power of the DelaSport Balkan League.
We did it. We played 68 games from October 2020 to April 2021. We have come over all the obstacles that stood in front of us. We have covered the entire original program without missing one game.
WE MUST BE PROUD FOR WHAT WE DID! RESPECT TO ALL.
I would like to send my big thank you to all the clubs that participated in BIBL, season 2020-21. To the Basketball Federations and Leagues, Players, Coaches, Team members, Commissioners, Referees, TV people from the Balkan region and from Sport 5 in Israel, Media people, SEGEV Team from Israel, The DelaSport Balkan league staff and to Buba.Maria.Miryana. Stelios, Milos and Lubi., to Dari from MS Travel. Without all those people this crazy journey couldn't be finished.
I want to thank to Shlomi Peri from the Israeli Winner league for his great support and great cooperation. We are lucky to have him with us during this very challenging season.
I want to send big big THANK YOU to our sponsor – DelaSport that believed in us and stood behind us from the first moment and gave us the possibility to run the season in the best way.
