Jerusalem set to discover Euroleague fate

New BSL champion Hapoel Jerusalem should find out on Monday if it will play in the Euroleague next season, with the chiefs of continental basketball’s most prestigious club competition set to determine which teams will receive a wild card to the regular season in 2015/16.

Maccabi Tel Aviv is currently the only Israeli club guaranteed a place in the Euroleague regular season as one of 11 teams with an A license.

Since the takeover of Hapoel Jerusalem by the ownership group led by Ori Allon two years ago, and in particular after moving to its new arena this season, the club has been in talks with the Euroleague with the hope of one day becoming a permanent member. Hapoel was handed a wild-card entry into the qualifiers for 2014/15, but it failed to progress.
