It was announced this week that Valencia would host the the play-off tournament which will decide the outcome of the Liga ACB.

For two weeks from 17 June, the twelve highest-ranked teams in the country pre-lockdown will compete in two groups for the league title.

Malaga side Unicaja will face Barcelona, Tenerife, Joventut, Bilbao and Baskonia in their group for one of two places in the semifinals.

Unicaja also learnt this week that both the Euroleague and Eurocup seasons have been declared over given the uneven development of the coronavirus crisis in Europe and the refusal of players to play.

The side had reached the quarterfinals of the latter and were among the favourites for the tournament which now won't return until at least 30 September.
