After Venice – Bourg-en-Bresse and Limoges – Bourg-en-Bresse in a Jeep Elite, the Ain club, affected by the coronavirus, sees a third match being postponed. This is the one scheduled for next Wednesday against the Russians in Kazan as part of the 4th day of the Eurocup. The JL explained in a press release on Friday: “It’s now a week since the JL has been affected by COVID-19 and is paying a high price by seeing its matches postponed, like many other teams in Jeep Elite. The next game at Ekinox will be no exception. The 4th Eurocup day between JL Bourg and UNICS Kazan, which was to be held in Ekinox this Wednesday, October 21 at 8:45 p.m. will not take place. Indeed, players who have tested positive for COVID-19 must allow 14 incompressible days to return to the field in Eurocup. To play this match, it would therefore be necessary to be able to present a minimum of 8 players on the match sheet.
At the moment, the problem is identical to that experienced against Venice: the professional workforce does not include these 8 necessary players. We are currently working on a possible postponement of this match. The Euroleague is meeting this Monday to confirm or not the postponement of all the matches not played. As soon as we know more about the fate of this meeting, we will obviously keep you informed. “
A very good start to the season for Bourg
To date, Bourg-en-Bresse, which is playing the European Cup for the very first time in its history, occupies third place in Group A, after only two games. She is also second in Jeep Elite, having won her first three meetings, including one on the floor of ASVEL after extra time.
