If the Munich Final Four in Belgrade (May 19 to 21) participated, the German Elite League would have interrupted its game in the knockout phase again for a few days.
This is not necessary because FC Bayern left FC Barcelona on Tuesday evening in the fifth quarter -finals.
For the play-offs, the BBL has now planned the following deadlines: The quarter-finals are to be held from May 13th to 25th, the semi-finals between May 28 and June 9.
The final starts on June 12th and is expected to end on June 23 at the latest.
All series are held in the best-of-five mode.
It has been re -established that the team with home rights plays games one and two in their own hall and is only then changed.
In the past, the home advantage was exchanged after each game.
The detailed dates should follow when the pairings of the quarter -finals are determined.
