Zalgiris to don special uniforms for EuroLeague season opener 6
Thursday marked the start of public sale to all of Zalgiris’ EuroLeague home games and Betsafe-LKL matchups up until the new year. As the team broke all attendance records last season, Zalgiris fans should not wait around and make sure they secure the best seats for the first EuroLeague bouts.
Zalgiris will take the stand in the top European basketball competition on the 4th of October, as they face Baskonia Vitoria. The game will also mark a momentous, 75-year anniversary of the club. To commemorate the three quarters of a century of history, Zalgiris will wear special, 80’s inspired jerseys.
A grand opening awaits fans, with a phenomenal video projection, while the half-time break will give an in-depth look at the team’s glorious history and greatest victories.
Besides all that, fans will continue to be entertained all over the arena with free virtual reality games, temporary tattoos, face painting, photos and other attractions.
Zalgiris also encourages fans to think ahead and book tickets early, as with the increased demand, ticket prices will automatically go up, as the best seats are picked out momentarily.
Zalgiris first game of the season will be played in Zalgirio Arena on the 25th of September, as they take on Pieno Zvaigzdes from Pasvalys. This will be the first chance for Zalgiris fans to see their beloved team in an official game this season.
Nevertheless, before that, fans will have the chance to meet and greet with the players on the 20th of September, at 12:30 in a traditional team presentation event in Kaunas Akropolis. They will not only get to see the players live, but will have a chance to chat with them, take photos and get their favorite players’ autographs. They will also have the opportunity to take part in all sorts of competitions and win Zalgiris prizes.
