The TDW1 final will not be played, Namur is the new champion
The story has finally come to an end. Castors Braine decided not to play the TDW1 final scheduled today at 20H30, due to the COVID cases in the team. Only 5 players were available for this Final. Braine asked to reschedule the Final Saturday. Basketball Belgium was oke, if the situation suited both teams, but Namur decided to decline the proposition to play this Saturday. For example, 2 players from Namur already have flights booked to return in their countries.
If a team doesn’t show up to tonight’s game, the title will be for the other finalist, said Basketball Belgium in multiple press releases. But for Castors Braine no one should be crowned champion: “Our team withdraws from the competition. The competition is stopped and therefore no one should be crowned champion.“
After a last meeting, Basketball Belgium decided to award the title to Namur.
