MUNICH (Germany) - The game schedule and tip-off times have been confirmed for the first EuroLeague Women Regular Season hubs that are to take place in Girona (ESP), Istanbul (TUR) and Sopron (HUN) from December 1-4, 2020.
The 16-team field for the 2020-21 Regular Season was completed last month following the conclusion of the Qualifiers, which were organized in the Turkish city of Izmit and saw Izmit Belediyespor (TUR) and Spar Girona (ESP) claim the last two spots.

As per the format changes for the upcoming campaign approved by the FIBA Europe Board, each of the four-team groups will convene in single venue hubs twice over the course of the Regular Season.
The locations for the first hubs were confirmed in October, with the applications of Fenerbahce (Group B), Spar Girona (Group C) and Sopron Basket (Group D) to host the tournaments of their respective groups approved.
Following an additional round of consultations with the clubs, a decision was made to hold the Group A tournament in Istanbul.
The hosts of the second Regular Season hubs, which will take place from January 17-23, 2021, will be announced at a later time.
In order to protect the health and guarantee the safety of players, coaches and officials, as well as to safeguard a fair competition, and to properly organize game operations, all other phases of the competition, including the Quarter-Finals and the Final Four, will also be conducted in single venue hubs.
