Vitoria hosts the Super Cup this weekend

The capital of Alava is used to hosting basket events of all kinds. With Baskonia based in the Buesa Arena, league finals, Copas del Rey, Super Cups and even a Euroleague Final Four have been played. Also Araski has organized a Queen’s Cup, plays in the Endesa League and is now setting up a Super Cup.

The Vitoria City Council, the Álava Provincial Council, the Basque Government and various sponsors have made this event possible. Since yesterday afternoon, with the dynamics of team training, there is activity at the Mendizorroza sports center, venue for the event today Saturday and tomorrow Sunday.

At 6 p.m. will take place the first semi-final between the Perfumeries Avenida de Salamanca and the Valencia Basket. The castellanas are favorites since the taronja are a bit diminished due to injuries. A week ago, without going any further, a triangular match with Clarinos in Vitoria was deactivated because the Levantines requested it. It was the Olarizu Trophy.

Araski beat Valencia Basket in a single match (66-60) and won that tournament. Today they will be seen at the second crossroads with the Spar Uni Girona, favorite also for its greater potential. The two teams that qualify tonight will play the Super Cup tomorrow at eight in the afternoon in the grand final.

There will surely be a crossover of colors in the stands during the weekend. The blue of Perfumerías, the orange of Valencia, the red of Girona and the green of Araski will coexist in Mendizorroza, old and historic pavilion where Baskonia used to play and now its LEB-Plata affiliate and Kutxabank Araski itself do.

We would like this tournament to serve as a coupling car so that people support us in Mendizorroza throughout the year”.
