Euroleague stars tip off EBI Annual Workshops in Barcelona
The fourth edition of the Euroleague Basketball Institute Annual Workshops started with a bang on Wednesday as player representatives from the Turkish Airlines Euroleague teams spent the day together going behind the scenes at the company’s headquarters and discussing their role in making the competition better now and in the future.
The players started their visit by getting immersed in Euroleague Basketball’s corporate social responsibility programme, One Team. They participated in an hour-long One Team training session designed to show them how the programme’s beneficiaries – thousands of people from disadvantaged groups across Europe – feel when players devote their time to teaching teamwork and other life skills through sport.
