The new season in the EuroLeague begins for FC Bayern Basketball with a home game in the Audi Dome: The German champion will host the top team Armani Olimpia Milan on Thursday, October 3rd starting at 20:30 to kick off the season in the premier class. The Italians recently signed star coach Ettore Messina, who has won the highest European competition four times (Virtus Bologna, ZSKA Moscow) and most recently worked in the NBA as an assistant coach with the San Antonio Spurs under Gregg Popovich. For the Bavarians, the difficult away game with the current champion ZSKA Moscow (October 10th) and the second home game against Asvel Villeurbanne from France (October 17th, 20:30) with president and owner Tony Parker will follow. "It's great that we're starting with a home game," said FCBB captain Danilo Barthel, "generally speaking, it's going to be another tough round in the EuroLeague."
