Although it was crooked from the start due to Corona, EASL ‘finally runs’
The new coronavirus infection (Corona 19) can’t be so slow, but I tie my basketball shoelaces again with regret behind me.
The East Asian Super League (EASL) has announced its match schedule. EASL released the EASL Champions Week schedule on the 10th (hereafter Korean time). It will be held in Utsunomiya and Okinawa, Japan from March 1 to 5. The prize money for the championship is 250,000 dollars (approximately 310 million won), and the runner-up and third place receive 100,000 dollars (approximately 120 million won) and 50,000 dollars (approximately 62 million won), respectively.
Originally, EASL was planned to be played as a home-and-away game from October of last year. He had an ambitious goal of dreaming of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Champions League (ACL) in basketball, but the schedule was urgently changed or reduced in the aftermath of Corona 19. That’s how ‘EASL Champions Week’ was born.
The schedule was greatly reduced, but as it was the first tournament, they expressed their will to lay the foundation for the next season. EASL CEO Matt Bayer said, “EASL has not played in over three years due to COVID-19. EASL Champions Week will serve as the foundation for the EASL Home and Away season starting in October 2023.”
Eight basketball club teams representing East Asia will participate. As Korean representatives, SK and KGC Ginseng Corporation, two teams that embroidered the championship match in the 2021-2022 season, will participate. SK will play the first match in Utsunomiya against the Bay Area Dragons at 5:00 pm on the 2nd, and then play the second match a day later at 5:00 pm with TNT Tropang Giga in Utsunomiya on the 3rd. 메이저사이트
Ginseng Corporation will play its first match against Taipei Pubon Braves in Utsunomiya at 5:00 pm on the 1st, and will have its next qualifying match against San Miguel Beerman at 4:00 pm on the 4th in Okinawa. The EASL ‘3rd Place Match’ and the final ‘Championship’ will be held in Okinawa on the 5th at 4pm and 7pm respectively.
EASL said, “We are finalizing negotiations for broadcasting rights with broadcasters that can transmit to East Asia and the world. Ticket purchase information will also be announced at a later date.”
