Basketball: the All Star Game scheduled for Wednesday evening at the Accor Arena will be able to accommodate 16,000 spectators

The organizers of the All Star Game are hissed with relief. The government announcements this Monday evening concerning the gauges and the ban on not receiving more than 2,000 people indoors will not come into effect until Monday, January 3. The restrictions therefore do not concern the smooth running of the National Basketball League show which will take place this Wednesday, December 29 at the Accor Arena in Paris.

The “star match” bringing together the best French and foreign players in the French Championship will take place, normally or almost: “The evening will be sold out,” said a member of the National League this Monday evening. We will be able to accommodate the 16,000 people who bought their tickets. Our fear was that the gauges – which we suspected that they would be imposed on us again – would be before Wednesday, in which case, we would have had to refuse people and sort at the entrance who could enter or not. It would have been hell. Fortunately, this is not the case. “.

Bercy will therefore be able to refuel for the last time before a certain time. The restrictive measures concern events scheduled from Monday 3 to Sunday 23 January. On Saturday January 15, for example, Tony Yoka’s fight in the same place cannot take place in front of more than 2,000 fans: “This Wednesday, all spectators will of course be welcomed in the best possible sanitary conditions, communicates the LNB. The presentation of the health pass and the wearing of a mask will be compulsory. “

The refreshments in the enclosure, before a future closure, will still be open. But it will be necessary to consume sitting down. Regarding the selected players, the LNB will unveil a new list this Tuesday morning depending on the players available. To preserve the presents, the League has modified some protocols. For example, no player will be able to answer face-to-face questions from the media in order to respect the distance.

ASVEL-Limoges maintained by the League

Already canceled last year due to the Covid, the annual meeting of the end of year celebrations of French basketball therefore passes between the drops. It’s almost a small miracle because basketball is already paying dearly for the outbreak of the epidemic. The Betlic Elite match scheduled for Monday evening between Portel and leader Boulogne-Levallois is postponed due to many positive cases in the workforce of Parisian suburbs. Most of the championship teams are more or less affected.

On Monday, Asvel thus unsuccessfully requested the postponement of its match against Limoges, the first televised on beIN sport since the start of the school year. “Confronted with many positive cases within the professional group, LDLC Asvel informed the LNB of the situation and the potential cluster that it represented by asking for the postponement of the match of this Monday evening”, specifies the club of Tony Parker.

The request was rejected but the French basketball trembles again in front of the specter of the camera, postponements of matches with the shovel, even of a new provisional stop of the competitions.
