According to sources, Dubai pulled out as a potential host of the year's final event. 

Kostas Melayess of Gazzetta reports the announcement will be released in November.

According to the Greek journalist, Kaunas is expected to be confirmed as the next EuroLeague Final Four host.

EuroLeague still didn't decide on the host city, per BasketNews sources.

Kaunas has been a frontrunner to host the event for a while.

Zalgiris fans led the EuroLeague in attendance from 2017 to 2020. The club already played 2 of their 3 EuroLeague home games this year with a sell-out crowd.

Also, Kaunas has the most modern arena in the competition. The second biggest city in Lithuania successfully hosted the final stage of the 2011 EuroBasket.

The Lithuanian government recently refused to provide an additional €1M for the rights to host the Final Four. However, it won't impact the final EuroLeague decision.
