Euroleague Basketball Announces October Re-Launch of Official Website
Given a 66% percent jump in Euroleague.net traffic last season, Euroleague Basketball continues seeking to improve communications with fans and the media while projecting all the dynamism of the continent's top competition. The new Euroleague.net will feature a streamlined design for easier navigation and a multi-tiered platform that permits content enhancements now and in the future. Better presentation of multimedia, more expansive statistics and new editorial features are some of the improvements fans will see right away. At the same time, Euroleague.net will continue to offer the best information available anywhere for fans of European basketball.
The relaunch of Euroleague.net on October 2 will coincide with the introduction of a new edition of Euroleague Fantasy Challenge, entering its third season as a magnet of fun for Euroleague fans worldwide. That same week, starting on Thursday, October 5, the stars of the Euroleague Basketball will be seen in a new format, NBA Europe Live, an eight-game, five-country preseason showcase between teams from the world's top two professional leagues.
