“We are delighted to welcome Kaunas to the list of cities hosting a Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Final Four. In just six months, Europe’s best teams will play for the crown in front of one of the most passionate audiences, as Lithuania is synonymous with basketball,” Dejan Bodiroga, Euroleague Basketball President, said. “I would like to thank the city of Kaunas and Zalgiris Kaunas for their commitment and interest in hosting the Final Four. Together we will undoubtedly deliver one more unforgettable memory to all our fans.”
Lithuania is one of the most traditional markets for Euroleague Basketball, with Zalgiris Kaunas serving as a licensed member of the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague and 43% of the population classified as either interested or very interested in Euroleague Basketball.
“Kaunas is where Lithuanian basketball was born, so it was a matter of honor to make sure that the EuroLeague Final Four finally takes place here. Let it be a big, beautiful celebration created by the best clubs in Europe, the citizens of Kaunas, and an army of thousands of fans from all over Lithuania and Europe,” Kaunas mayor Visvaldas Matijosaitis said. “Sports has always gone hand in hand with culture in Kaunas. In 2022, we were the European capital of culture, and next year we’ll gladly host the final battles of the EuroLeague.”
Fans attending the Final Four will enjoy one of the most modern venues in Europe, Zalgirio Arena. With a capacity of more than 15,000 spectators for basketball, the home of Zalgiris Kaunas was opened in 2011 and is the largest indoor arena in the Baltic region.
“The decision to hold the EuroLeague Final Four in Kaunas is the highest level of appreciation for the entire Zalgiris organization. We have been striving for years to host this prestigious event in our country, so we are even more pleased that our efforts have been appreciated. We are grateful to the Kaunas city municipality, which supported our ambition and enthusiastically agreed to contribute to the success of this tournament. There is a lot of work to be done, a lot of communication with the Euroleague, but we are ready for it. We will do our best to make this the best Final Four celebration in league history,” Zalgiris Kaunas Director Paulius Motiejunas said.
“We are excited to bring the Final Four to such a basketball-crazy market as Lithuania. From May 19 to 21, all our fans will be welcome to be part of an incredible atmosphere in one of the best and most modern venues in Europe, Zalgirio Arena, and to share a true basketball party in Kaunas by enjoying the multiple parallel events that will be organized around the city,” Marshall Glickman, Euroleague Basketball CEO, said. “I would like to express my gratitude to the Municipality of Kaunas and Zalgirio Arena for welcoming us and the thousands of devoted fans who will come to the Final Four to enjoy a lifetime experience.”
2024 will bring the Final Four back to the German capital of Berlin, which will become the first city to host three Final Fours since Euroleague Basketball’s inception. The decision comes after the 2022 Final Four postponement, due to COVID-19 restrictions, that brought the season-ending event to Belgrade. The 2024 Final Four will feature the semifinals on Friday, May 24, with the third-place and championship games two days later.
