As the first phase, the “Pavilhao Gimnodesportivo de Luso”, in the region of Aveiro in the north of Portugal, will host also the latest phase of Euroleague, The Final Four
At the end of the first phase, we then return to Luso to determine the new Euroleague winner who will succeed Sporting CP, winner of the 2018-2019 season. A return that will see for the first time four Portuguese teams in the last stage, never happened since there is a final phase. The “Portuguese poker” will then have its epilogue in the same parquet where they faced each other in five teams, able to excite all the audience who watched on TV from thier home. Once again there will be no public presence but there will be the cameras of the first Portuguese television, RTP, which will broadcast the whole competition live on television, while World Skate Europe TV will broadcast it live streaming. On Friday afternoon (at 15.00 in live streaming), the press conference of the four coaches is scheduled, at the Grande Hotel de Luso, the headquarters, as in the first phase, of the rigid “bubble” of European rinl hockey. Saturday the first semi-final at 17.00, FC Porto vs UD Oliveirense “the northern derby” and at 9.00 pm, SL Benfica vs Sporting CP, the “Lisbon derby”. The final will be broadcast from 5.30 pm between the two winners. There will be four referees appointed, two Italian (Fronte and Ferrari) and two Spanish (Gonzalez and Mayor), and two Portuguese (Pedro Silva and Almeida) referees who will take care of the official table.
