Campazzo cannot play the Euroleague due to a sanction against his club

The Argentine point guard Facundo Campazzo, brand new reinforcement of Red Star, will not be able to play in the Euroleague until at least March due to a sanction imposed by the Finance Panel of the competition, after considering that the Serbian club failed to comply with the Financial Stability and Fair Play Regulations of the organism. Faced with this suspension, the Balkan team requested a review of the case by ensuring that it had already complied with all its obligations.

“The sanctions imposed consider the seriousness of the infringements, which included having past-due debts with players from current and previous seasons, as well as providing false or inaccurate information, which allowed the club to gain an undue competitive advantage and continue with its normal operations despite of an irregularity,” the Euroleague said in a statement. “The Panel also considered the recidivism, since the Serbian club was previously sanctioned on two other occasions in recent years,” he continued.

In this way, Red Star will not be able to register new basketball players until March 1, facing the final stages of the Euroleague, and among them is Facundo Campazzo from Cordoba, who signed in the last days after passing through the NBA in the past three seasons. In principle, the former Denver player would miss nine games, although a side effect could favor the Argentine National Team: the captain could be in the FIBA ​​qualifying window in February, when Pablo Prigioni’s team hosts Canada on Thursday the 23rd and to the Dominican Republic on Sunday 26 in the last two qualifying dates.
