On Sunday in Marseille, Oleksiy Yefimov told us that having managed to host EuroLeague matches in Gaston-Médecin, rather than in Antibes or elsewhere, was “the biggest achievement of the start of the season” for AS Monaco. “We have observed enormous interest from the Monegasques since most of the matches have been sold out,” for the GM of the Roca Team. However, the Principality’s club remains uncertain about the return phase. At the end of September, the EuroLeague indicated that the second part of the season would be subject to a reassessment.
The decision fell by a letter on Monday: AS Monaco may well challenge the return phase of its season to Gaston-Médecin. A logical continuation of the events approved by the clubs holding an A license who discussed it among themselves last week. If the specifications of the EuroLeague impose a minimum capacity of 5,000 seats, there is no doubt that the expansion project (for this threshold of 5,000 seats) of the gymnasium located under the Louis-II stadium, validated by the princely government with a view to next summer, weighed in the balance.
In eight home games, the Roca Team have a balanced record of four wins and four losses so far.
