#F4FANZONE COMING TO KALEMEGDAN FORTRESS IN BELGRADE!


The capital of Serbia has long awaited the arrival of the crowning event in Europe's premier basketball competition and it is only fitting that the most-visited attraction in Belgrade, Kalemegdan Fortress, would host the busiest event at the Final Four. The three-day Turkish Airlines EuroLeague FanZone, which annually attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors to participate in or watch dozens of games, exhibits and performances, will set up shop on the ancient site overlooking modern Belgrade.

When the balls are not bouncing on the hardwood court at Stark Arena, where the four best teams in the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague will battle for supremacy, the FanZone becomes the place for basketball fans to congregate. The FanZone at Kalemegdan Fortress will be a celebration of the sport from Friday, May 18 through Sunday, May 20. For at least 12 hours each day, the FanZone will be bustling with activities and games hosted and sponsored by Euroleague Basketball partners Turkish Airlines, 7DAYS, fonbet, adidas, Spalding, Armani Exchange, Tadim, EFES, Voda Voda, Tripoki, Caffe Buscaglione and HEED.

Millions of fans have enjoyed the FanZone in past editions at iconic venues like Trafalgar Square in London, Piazza del Duomo in Milan, Plaza Oriente in Madrid and Alexanderplatz in Berlin -- and Belgrade will be no different. Visitors will be joined by a parade of players from the Final Four teams, Euroleague Basketball Ambassadors and rising stars as Kalemegdan Fortress buzzes all weekend with games, contests, exhibitions, autograph sessions, concerts and more.

There attractions will be non-stop, especially on the special basketball court assembled at the heart of the Fan Zone, which will feature exhibition games with sports stars and celebrities, adidas 3x3 tournaments, a five-on-five school tournament, slam dunk contests and shows, spectator games, DJ performances, EFES EuroLeague Dancing squad shows and meet-and-greet opportunities with Euroleague Basketball Ambassadors, and crowd-pleasing One Team special events.

Registration for the adidas 3x3 tournament will be open from Friday, April 27 until Sunday, May 13. There will be five different age categories in both male and female sections. To register a team, send the following information to [email protected]eague.net or sign up via the Athlenda app: full name, birthday, email address, telephone number, postal address, occupation, your 3x3 team name, and favorite EuroLeague team.

As always, the atmosphere created by passionate basketball lovers from Serbia and around the globe promises to make the Fan Zone a spectacle anyone in Belgrade for the 2018 Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Final Four must see!
