Turkish Airlines Euroleague Final FourApril 17 - Tickets for the 2013 Turkish Airlines Euroleague Final Four, the climax of the premier club basketball competition in Europe, at The O2 in London next month have almost sold.

The prestigious event will be staged in London for the first time on May 10 until 12 and just two seating categories among the 15,126 seats at the venue are still available, leaving less than the 20 per cent of the capacity remaining for the public.

"One month before the event, Euroleague Basketball anticipates that the Final Four will soon sell out," said a statement from Euroleague Basketball.

"At that point, no more tickets will be available except those that will be offered to the qualified teams, approximately 1,000 tickets each, once the playoffs finish.

"Panathinaikos Athens, Olympiacos Piraeus, FC Barcelona Regal and Real Madrid fans have been the most active buyers during the selling period.

"Euroleague Basketball would also like to highlight the big expectation created in the United Kingdom, the source of 32 per cent of the Final Four tickets buyers so far."

To mark the competition's first visit to London and the UK, a special Fan Zone will also be set up in Trafalgar Square while the competition takes place to promote the Euroleague Final Four and the sport.
