Olympiacos BC, one of Europe’s premier basketball teams
Basketball is an exciting, fast moving game. The players move round the court with such agility that it is almost as if they are dancing. Dribbling with a skill that makes it look as if the ball and player are one unit. The games are fast and furious and hotly contested. To see European basketball at its best, look no further than StubHub, where you can buy and sell Olympiacos BC tickets and watch one of the premier teams in Greece, and indeed The FIBA European League, in action.
Olympiacos were established in 1931. They are part of Olympiacos CFP, which is a multi-sports club organisation. Their home stadium is in the coastal town of Piraeus, the award-winning Peace and Friendship Stadium. Olympiacos have won innumerable competitions, including the Greek Championships, Triple Crowns and EuroLeague Basketball championships. In 1979, the club qualified for their first ever European competition. Just over a decade later, Olympiacos were suddenly regular contenders in all the top basketball competitions. They won the EuroLeague Championship and were the first Greek team to do so when they took the title in a victory against FC Barcelona Lassa. The 1990s were such a great decade for the club that the sport’s governing body, FIBA, crowned them as the best basketball team of the decade. The team has been home to a list of the best basketball players in Europe. This includes, Giorgos Sigalas, who is regarded as one of the leading defenders in the European game, American Walter "The Truth" Berry, who played first in the US NBA leagues then became a European player of some note and is famous for his left-hand sky hook, and Vassilis Spanoulis who earned himself the nickname of "Kill Bill" and was acclaimed as the Balkans' Best Athlete in 2009. Buy and sell Olympiacos tickets on StubHub to see this remarkably successful team in action.
