The last season may only have just finished but Unicaja's attentions are already firmly on the new campaign as it slowly begins to take shape.

Luis Casimiro's side will return from a summer break on 10 August for the start of preseason, it's been announced, ahead of a gruelling calendar for which the coach can start planning.

The first game to be given the go-ahead by the provincial authorities will be the Torneo Costa del Sol which will see a rerun of the Copa del Rey final against Real Madrid. It will take place at the Martín Carpena arena on 29 August and could yet involve a third team.

League action is expected to resume either on 12 or 19 September, ahead of the start of the Eurocup campaign.

The group in which the Malaga-based side will compete has already been drawn and it is a favourable one: Buducnost, Brescia, Ratiopharm Ulm, Maccabi Rishom and Metropolitans 92.
