We are kicking off the basketball Saturday in Sopron at 4.30 pm, during which first our ladies, then afterwards, the gentlemen also step on court in Novomatic Aréna.
Our opponents will be Ludovika-FCSM Csata, who are in the middle of the table at the sixth seed. Fresh news about them is that they strengthened their roster with an American shooting guard. The American Japreece Dean began her European career in Russia, and this year she even participated in the Euroleague Women Qualifiers with Kayseri, among others, scoring 20 against Szekszárd. A week ago they were defeated by Szekszárd without her, but as long as they were able to keep up the pace, they managed to put up a fight against the in-form blue and white squad.
We can expect a tough game against them, especially since we are hosting them with an incomplete roster. As it is known, the international basketball federation (FIBA) decided to postpone our Euroleague Women game against Fenerbahce due to coronavirus cases on Tuesday, when we still couldn't see if there were going to be additional cases. As a result of careful actions it did not happen, so even if it is with an incomplete roster, we can already play the game against Csata, who are dangerous opponents, in which there is a risk of success, but because of the really tight schedule our board decided to play the game with a short rotation.
Our head coach Dávid Gáspár also expects a tough game.
Tickets to the game can be purchased at the venue for 1500 HUF. According to the regulation in effect, entry to the game is only permitted for those in possession of an EU or Hungarian vaccination card, and those under the age of 18 may enter along with a grown-up who has a vaccination card.
Following last year’s really successful end-of-season event we closed this historic season with a memorable night, too, in the festive environment of Novomatic Aréna, during which our team’s 2022/2023 roster was also announced!
