Zalgiris – in your school

For the eleventh consecutive year, Zalgiris invites the younger fans and their schools to be active supporters of the team. Just as in previous years, throughout the duration of the project, schools register for and visit the team’s home games and collect points, with the most active of schools being awarded a very special visit from the whole Zalgiris team at the end of the school year.

Zalgiris has already visited schools in Kaunas and beyond, with schools and gymnasiums from Kazlu Ruda, Kalvarijos, Marijampole, Varena, Vilkaviskis and Kelme also being amongst the most active ones.

Pupils are offered a special price to see Zalgiris in action in the EuroLeague or Betsafe-LKL, with an unforgettable experience in Zalgirio Arena guaranteed. There aren’t too many better ways for a school community to spend their time together after class!

After Betsafe-LKL games (except with Rytas, Neptunas and Lietkabelis), they will also have the chance to collect autographs and take photos with their favorite Zalgiris players.

To take part in the project, pupils should:

  1. Register their school for the project before November 30th, 2018 by e-mail, uzsakymai@zalgiris.lt;
  2. Pick the game you’d like to see. You can find the schedule here;
  3. Get 10 or more schoolmates, who’d like to see a game in Zalgiris Arena;
  4. Register the group by e-mail (uzsakymai@zalgiris.lt) with the number of attendees as soon as possible;
  5. Every pupil earns 1 point for a Euroleague game or matchups against Rytas, Neptunas and Lietkabelis, and 3 points for every other Betsafe-LKL game.
  6. A group will earn 20 additional points for their team if they come dressed in green-and-white and upload the photo to the project’s Facebook page (http://facebook.com/zalgiristavomokykloje) or send it to uzsakymai@zalgiris.lt;
  7. Create an original video ‘Why Zalgiris should come to MY school’ and upload it to http://facebook.com/zalgiristavomokykloje. The viewers’ top three videos will earn an additional 40 points for their school.
  8. The school will also earn additional points for the distance to Zalgiris Arena:
Kilometers Additional points
30 – 99 5
100 – 150 10
151 – 199 15
> 200 20

* Schools from Kaunas or within 30 km do not receive extra points

* The table shows the amount of additional points earned for one home game in Zalgiris Arena.

  1. The school with the most points by the end of the Betsafe-LKL regular season will be rewarded a very special visit from the Zalgiris team.
