Euroleague Basketball has announced that Maroussi BC's licence to participate in the Turkish Airlines Euroleague Qualifying Rounds, which start on Tuesday, September 21, has been revoked. Euroleague Basketball has been forced to take this decision after not having received any of the registration documents from Maroussi BC as required in the competition by-laws. Euroleague Basketall would also like to point out that Maroussi BC's licence to participate in the Greek League has not been granted yet. All participating teams in Euroleague Basketball competitions also must be participants in their respective national leagues. No team will replace Maroussi BC in the Qualifying Round 1 against Budivelnik, therefore the Ukranian team will authomatically advance to the Qualifying Round 2.
