The global pandemic caused by the outbreak of SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) is slowly receding, but the joy is being overshadowed by the war in Ukraine! The war which is a tragedy not only for the people of Ukraine, Europe, but all over the world! This tragedy is destroying lives, families and homes, killing people!
ESBA fully supports the STOP WAR initiative!
Due to the war, many teams cannot participate, many are suspended to participate in the “Druskininkai 2022” Championship! At present, Lithuania still has a state of emergency throughout the country.
Given the current situation, the timing and context is not right to host the Championship. We understand that this disappoints all participants, friends and partners, but we must announce that the ESBA European Senior Basketball Championship “Druskininkai 2022” is being canceled.
While this saddens us all, we want to assure you that we will do everything we can to meet on the basketball court in 2023.
As soon as the new decision will be made, we will inform you.
Health and peace to you all!
