At the halfway point of the regular club basketball season, Turkish Airlines EuroLeague general managers were polled on their Final Four favorites, the most uncomfortable opponent and their preferred city to visit on a road trip, among other questions. We’re thrilled to see Žalgirio arena, the biggest indoor venue in the Baltics, has received so much attention.

“Once again the home court of Žalgiris Kaunas is identified as Euroleague’s best venue. The multi-purpose Žalgirio arena makes a magnificent amphiteahtre for basketball and has led the way with more than half of the votes”, says the voice behind the screen in the Euroleague newscast. Žalgirio arena got 56.25% of the votes and Fenerbahce Istanbul came second with 18.75%. Here’s the full video.

We’ve included a home game of Žalgiris as one of the top reasons to visit Kaunas in 2017. Check the team’s schedule, buy a ticket and see you there!
