After holding a working session with the 18 clubs this Wednesday, the acb announces that the Endesa League 2019-20 will be resolved in Valencia with a Final Phase that will face the 12 best teams in the Regular League in two weeks of competition.
The Association thus confirms the return of the Endesa League once the government has authorized the resumption of professional leagues and the evolution of the pandemic allows the competition to be disputed with the best health guarantees for the health of all participants.
Valencia, venue of the Endesa League Final Phase
After studying the nine candidacies and external medical reports, the acb has selected Valencia as the venue for the Final Phase of the Endesa League, attending mainly to sanitary criteria and, in the second instance, to accommodation and sports facilities.
The acb wishes to thank all the candidates for the proposal and interest shown in the organization of the Final Phase.
This will be the Final Phase of the Endesa League
The top 12 ranked after Day 23 of the Regular League will be measured in Valencia to dispute the Endesa League title.
The 12 teams will be divided into two groups of six teams, distributed according to their classification in the Regular League following the distribution criteria equivalent to the Playoff format. All teams will play five games, one against each rival in their group.
The top two finishers in each group will meet in the semifinals, and the winners will play the final, in both cases in a single match.
In total, 33 matches will be played within two weeks.
