EUROCUP FINAL: CONGRATS TO THE WINNER!

For the 17th season of Europe´s exciting basketball championship, people from all around Europe gathered last Weekend (12th – 14th April 2019) in Berlin’s famous Mercedes Benz Arena to see the teams of ALBA Berlin and Valencia Basket battle for gold. 

The 2018–19 EuroCup Basketball season, also known as 7DAYS EuroCup, is the 17th season of Europe's secondary level professional basketball tournament, organized by Euroleague Basketball. The winner of the EuroCup qualifies for the next season's EuroLeague.

 

The title has been won by 11 different clubs, 3 of which have won the title more than once. The most successful club in the history of the competition is Valencia Basket.

As nearly 600 Spanish basketball fans flocked to Berlin for the event, the i‑contravel team – headed by our Product Manager Oscar Rojas – worked in harmony, to ensure the smooth running of the event, providing a warm welcome, timely transport and a fantastic memory for these honored guests. When intricate work like this is required, it is important to count on years of expertise and a synchronized team with profound field experience to handle the challenge. 

 

Despite the chilly weather, Berlin provided a great venue for the cheering, celebrating fans, who thoroughly enjoyed their visit to the capital city. Restaurant Maximilians offered a perfect location for the fans to enjoy local specialties, while singing and dancing with delight to the tunes of a Spanish brass band.

Although Valencia Basket were defeated by Alba Berlin on Friday in Berlin, the team returned to Spain and ended the championship with a winning match against ALBA on Monday evening (15th April) in their home arena, making Valencia Basket the champions of the EuroCup 2019.

 

Congratulations to the winning Team Valencia Basket!

Well done and thank you for choosing i‑contravel as your local host!
