Unless you are a die-hard Euroleague basketball fan, you probably won’t want to shell out the €497 to €1247 (ouch!) for tickets to the playoffs in Athens this weekend, but you can still enjoy all the hoopla surrounding the event.
The biggest indoor sporting event to take place in Athens since the 2004 Summer Olympic Games, the Euroleague Final Four has got the whole city abuzz with excitement, especially as Athens’ own Panathinaikos is competing for the top spot.
In Syntagma Square, the public is invited to play hoops with Nerf-style nets and balls. Bars all around the city are planning to broadcast the games. If you crave more frenzied action, just go to OAKA and listen to the games with other fans outside the arena!
The semi-finals will tip off tonight (May 4, 2007) at 5:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. CET. The finals will be played at 8:30 p.m. on Sunday.
