The first calendar event of a new and exciting basketball season – the draw for the 2013-14 Turkish Airlines Euroleague – will be held on Thursday, July 4 in Barcelona at 12:00 CEST. The draw will be held in two parts: one to decide the four groups of six teams each that will make up the regular season; the other to set the bracket for the eight-team qualifying rounds, whose winner will become the 24th and final regular season team.
For the eighth consecutive year, the 2013-14 draw may be watched live on Euroleague.net and in countries across the continent through broadcasters Eurosport, NTV Spor of Turkey, NTV Plus of Russia, Sportitalia of Italy, TV3 of Spain and Sportklub of Serbia, among others. Immediately after the draw, fans may also see live-streamed interviews on Euroleague.net with Turkish Airlines Euroleague club management giving their impressions of the draw results.
The draw follows the Euroleague Basketball Institute Annual Workshops, a week-long series of events that brings together Euroleague head coaches, industry professionals and special guest speakers on subjects like ticketing, marketing or communications, among others.
