Turkey has been represented in the EuroLeague final in six of the past seven seasons.

Paulius Motiejunas, Chief Executive of EuroLeague Basketball, said: “Turkey is one of EuroLeague Basketball’s most important markets, with a large fan base, and it is very important for us to partner with a company to help developing and amplifying environmental consciousness.”

Enerjisa Commodities is the global trading arm of Turkey’s leading private sector energy generation company Enerjisa Uretim.

As well as investing in renewable and sustainable energy, the organisation aims to create awareness among the public about the importance of green energy for a sustainable future.

İhsan Erbil Bayçöl, Chairman of Enerjisa Commodities, said: “I believe this agreement is the beginning of a long-running and inspiring relationship between EuroLeague Basketball and Enerjisa Commodities.
