50 Years photographic exhibition ready for Madrid
As part of the signature event of the season-long 50 Years of European Basketball celebration, the 2008 Final Four in Madrid will feature a
one-of-a-kind photo exhibition
that will cover all five decades in European club basketball. From Royal IV SC Anderlechtois of Luxembourg, the first team to win a European Cup game on February 22, 1958, up to and including the dramatic finish of the 2007 Euroleague Final Four, the photo exhibition captures many of the most thrilling moments played out for European basketball fans over the past 50 years. Over 160 pictures and documents will be exhibited at the 2008 Euroleague Final Four, both in the media and VIP rooms of the playing venue, the Community of Madrid Sports Palace, as well as at The Euroleague Basketball Award Ceremony to name the All-Euroleague team and MVP. The exhibition also features historic roster sheets, magazine and newspaper covers, and documents such as the boxscore of the 1960s game in which the late, great Radivoj Korac of OKK Belgrade scored 99 points against Alvik Stockholm.
Some of the
pictures appearing in the exhibition
are courtesy of L'Equipe in France, Gazzetta Dello Sport, Giganti del Basket and Superbasket in Italy, Sportske Novosti, Sport Belgrade and Politika Belgrade in Serbia, As, Mundo Deportivo, Ya, Marca and Gigantes del Basket in Spain, Oslobodjenje in Bosnia and Herzegovina and Lietuvos Rytas in Lithuania, as well as some from the private collections from Miguel Angel Fornies and Rodolfo Molina. Clubs like KK Bosna and KK Split, as well as FIBA have collaborated generously. This project would not have been possible, however, without the help of Fundación Pedro Ferrandiz in Alcobendas, Spain, which contributed more than any other source to the exhibition. Some of the most glorious moments in European club basketball are set to be shown at this unique exhibition and shared with fans across the world on Euroleague.net. Get ready to enjoy it!
