Owner Massimo Zanetti says Virtus Bologna will defend its title in BCL next season

Zanetti said that from next season Virtus Bologna has to play for the Serie A title

Massimo Zanetti, owner of Virtus Segafredo Bologna, said that the team will play again in Basketball Champions League next season to defend the title won on Sunday against Iberostar Tenerife.

Virtus Bologna was also interested in asking for a wild card to play in EuroCup but they will play one more season in BCL.

“I think we will continue to play in Basketball Champions League. With a 5.000 seats arena, BCL is our dimension. If we want to enter in EuroLeague, we need a 8.000-10.000 seats arena that would allow us to increase ticketing and sponsors. Also build a a good team for EuroLeague is very expensive. I look at Milano. They have spent a lot of money but they did not collected anything yet. We won our Cup” Zanetti told La Gazzetta dello Sport. “From next season Virtus will always play to win the Serie A championship. People want a final between Milano and Virtus? Good, that time is coming”.
