Beyond the winner of the European title, Turkish Airlines Euroleague turned Madrid into a great basketball festivity where the fans of all four teams enjoyed many activities in a great setting and ambiance.
“This is the perfect weekend: a bank holiday and therefore, the opportunity to enjoy the Final Four to the fullest extend” expressed a supporter in the fanzone whilst enjoying the basketball game activities in the Turkish Airlines stand in Plaza Oriente. This way, he expressed the sentiment of many basketball fans who celebrated in the city of Madrid the most important European basketball competition.
The feast ended with the final match where the team of Real Madrid won the desired trophy against the Olympicacos Piraeus in a highly disputed game. Mr. İsmail Gerçek as the Member of the Executive Committee of Turkish Airlines handed over the trophies to the newly crowned champions and congratulated both teams for their great play. Mr. İsmail Gerçek confirmed “the success of this important competition followed by millions of fans in Madrid and worldwide” and expressed “his pride of Turkish Airline to be part of the history of European basketball as we share the values of this great competition: play hard, play together and play to win.”
The Turkish Airlines Euroleague, in the second Madrid edition, accompanied by wonderful sunny weather, permitted complete families to take pleasure in a host of activities related to its favourit sport. In the fanzone at the Plaza de Oriente, thousands of kids and grown-up fans could enjoy fun activities, good music, show off their basketball skills in the stand of Turkish Airlines, compete in tournaments, or see, meet and, if lucky, take photos with and get autographs from Euroleague legends of yesterday like Theo Papaloukas, Joe Arlauskas and Sasha Djordjevic and stars of today like Bogdan Bogdanovic, Marcus Slaughter, Byrant Dunston or Sasha Kaun, amongst others.
Turkish Airlines also took advantage of the exciting basketball feast to celebrate its 30th anniversary in Madrid with a gala cocktail in the Casino de Madrid which was attended by partners and friends including the well known football player from Atlético de Madrid Arda Turán. At the same time, these four days of basketball fun and the attendance of fans from all over the world more than lived up to the expectations and served to confirm the prolongation of Turkish Airlines sponsorship of the Euroleague until 2020. The conclusion is clear: the Turkish Airlines Final Four has been a massive success.
