Galatasaray players ask Turkish League to suspend games in a joint statement

Galatasaray is supposed to play Pinar Karsiyaka tomorrow.

In a joint statement published by all players on Instagram, Galatasaray team has urged the Turkish BSL League to suspend games. BSL and Britain’s BBL are the only European Basketball League not suspended or cancelled yet due to Coronavirus.

“We appreciate the Turkish Government has taken measures to slow down the spread of the virus however we find it quite bizarre that we keep playing, despite it being behind closed doors. We have seen how hesitation to take extreme action has provoked a spike in cases in neighbouring countries and we believe now is the time to take extreme action”, the statement says.
