On June 12, the team coached by Zeljko Obradovic will face Crvena Zvezda Meridianbet in the first game of a best-of-five series. As Partizan have the home-court advantage and are the hosts in Game 1, the Serbian club issued an announcement, which was targeted at their fans who intend to attend the finals. 

"A large number of fans in Stark Arena wore black and white and further pushed the boundaries when it comes to atmosphere, raising the reputation of the entire ABA League," Partizan mentioned.

"With a large number of children in the stands, the arrival of families to the games is something that Partizan Mozzart Bet is proud of and something that almost the entire basketball Europe speaks and writes about," the club continued.

"However, during the last few matches, some of the fans in the arena have returned to the old bad habits that the club firmly believes aren't part of a sports environment. Insults on the basis of club, political, religious, or any other affiliation are not values that Partizan Mozzart Bet supports.

In this way, the club wishes to appeal to the fans to focus exclusively on supporting Partizan players and coach Zeljko Obradovic during the upcoming final series. The fiery but sporty atmosphere, which especially in the second part of the season adorned the Stark Arena, should remain so during the final series," Partizan emphasized. 

"Wasting energy on insulting rivals, rival officials and their family members or insulting state officials and other participants in public life, least benefits those for whom we gather in the hall – players and coaches," the announcement pointed out.
