Hapoel Jerusalem threatened with BSL suspension

The Israel Basketball Association notified Hapoel Jerusalem on Tuesday that it will not be allowed to register for the 2016/17 BSL campaign due to its decision to play in the Eurocup rather than FIBA’s new Champions League.

The IBA’s letter comes on the back of the bitter war between FIBA and the Euroleague, which also runs the Eurocup. Jerusalem’s decision to be part of the Eurocup rather than the Champions League was made official on Monday when the Euroleague announced the 24 teams that will compete in the event next season.
