Thirty days. It starts on October 2 and ends on May 7. The Basketball League has formalized the schedule for the 2022-2023 regular season, the one that will decide the grid for the championship sprint. The aperitif is therefore rich and abundant. Like always. Many challenges that will ignite the imagination of fans. Starting with the eternal challenge, that between Ettore Messina’s Italian champion Milan and Sergio Scariolo’s Virtus Bologna. There will be four derbies, between Italy and Europe, to start: November 11 and April 13 in Europe, while in the league, the Italian derby will take place on January 2 in Bologna and March 19 in Milan. .

Dates and curiosities

Juicy as always, the Christmas offset. In fact, in Santo Stefano, the Milan-Varese derby and the classics Pesaro-Bologna and Venice – Sassari stand out. But even the first day provides for a start with a bang with Milan-Brescia: for Mitrou-Long, who spent the summer at Olimpia, immediately the challenge of the heart against the ambitious Leonessa of the patron Ferrari who re-signed Della Valle, the mvp of the last championship. The two newly promoted Verona and Scafati, absent from Serie A in 2001-02 and 2007-08 respectively, will make their first home debuts with Brindisi and the second with Venice. Speaking of challenges from the heart: the Milanese Tonut will face Venice on October 23 at the Taliercio, while the new Venetian Spissu will face Sassari on December 26 in Mestre. From Wednesday February 15 to Sunday February 19, 2023, the top 8 teams at the end of the regular season will compete as usual in the Final Eight which will award the Italian Cup (the place is yet to be defined). However, the format of the heats remains unchanged: the quarter-finals and the semi-finals will be played in the best of 5 races and the final will be played in the best of 7 races. The dates will be made official depending on whether or not Italian teams participate in the final stages of European club competitions.


For his part, the president of the Basketball League Umberto Gandini starts from the visibility to be given to the product, or from the new TV contract which has just been signed with Eleven Sports for the next three years: “This novelty will cause some inconvenience, kinda like the success with the move from Sky to Dazn for football. A migration of subscribers will be required. Then we have two pillars left to define: the paid broadcaster and here’s one of Eleven’s responsibilities and how the free product will be This is a situation that the League reserves the right to define after the completion of the remuneration framework “The number one of the Basketball League then continues on the Milan-Virtus rivalry, but not only: “It is the most important teams in our basketball, they are coming back to the Euroleague and having two representatives can only be good for the movement.” It is the rivalry and the interest that becomes a national theme but, even if I realize that a fat nde rivalry is part of history, we can count on many realities, such as Venice, Brescia, Tortona, Sassari, etc. The technical level is not only increasing for the two battleships, but also for the other teams”. The next Coppa Italia, on the other hand, does not yet take place: “We already have ideas. We would like to bring the product to new places, but we must have adequate facilities and a receptive territory. I am convinced that at the end of September I will be able to announce where we will play.”
