Due to his move to FC Bayern Munich, basketball player Niels Giffey has a scheduling conflict. On Thursday (8.00 p.m.) the Munich team will be visiting Alba Berlin in the Euroleague, on Friday (7.00 p.m.) the World Cup qualifier against Finland is on the agenda in Bamberg.

The 31-year-old Giffey will only be able to play in one game. “It may be that he plays for Bayern on Thursday. The club makes the decision because he is under contract there,” said Armin Andres, Vice President of the German Basketball Association (DBB) to the dpa.

There have been conflicts over the game calendar between the world association Fiba and the Euroleague for years. In the Euroleague, the game will therefore continue to be played in international game windows. In principle, Andres thinks Giffey’s move from CB Murcia to Munich makes sense. “He’ll definitely be able to cope quickly and well. In terms of performance, there’s no question that he’s a Euroleague player,” said the official. Giffey was also there in September when Germany won the bronze medal at the European Championships at home.
