During the pandemic in the spring of 2020, the future for the Italian club Pallacanestro Varese didn't look particularly bright. There was a lot of uncertainty surrounding the club's future, and the financial outlook wasn't exactly encouraging.

2022-06-15

Records are there to be broken. That's what they say. But these selected few may never be touched again in the history of the EuroLeague.

2022-05-16

Pallacanestro Varese officially announced the club's CEO Luis Scola expressed the desire to the directors and team's owners to exercise the option of acquiring 51% of the club shares, as required by the contract signed last summer.

The operation will become official only after all the required bureaucratic procedures have been completed. The terms of the agreement are and will remain private and confidential, via the report. 

"I am extremely happy with this possibility. I am confident that this solution can lead to major success in the future," Scola said.

The legendary Luis Scola began a new chapter in his life last September.

The 42-year-old finished his playing career after Argentina lost to Australia in the Tokyo Olympic Games quarterfinals and ended their quest for the medals.

Varese was the last team in Scola's professional basketball career.

Throughout his journey, Scola became the Spanish League winner (2002), three times Spanish Cup (2002, 2004, 2006), and three times Spanish Supercup winner (2005, 2006, 2007). He was also named Spanish League MVP twice (2005, 2007).

With his country, Scola won the gold medal in Athens Olympic Games in 2004 and a bronze medal in Beijing in 2008.

He also has two silver medals from FIBA World Cup in 2002 and 2019. Moreover, Scola won two gold (2001 and 2011), four silver (2003, 2007, 2015, 2017), and three bronze (1999, 2009, 2013) medals in FIBA AmeriCup tournaments.

Finally, Scola also won the gold medal in Pan American Games in 2019.
