ULEB, the Union of European Leagues of Basketball, announced Tuesday that current President Tomas Van Den Spiegel was re-elected for the 2020-24 term in Monday’s General Assembly.

“I am happy to be re-elected and thank all member leagues for their confidence. I am looking forward to representing each one of them again for the coming four years,” said the Belgian former player in the press release, “It is important to me to maintain the current momentum and togetherness that we have established between all members during my first term. This has culminated amongst others in the competition complaint that was recently filed to the European Commission versus Euroleague. Next to protecting the European sports model, it is essential that we as domestic leagues stand our ground and protect national league basketball in general. Furthermore, I will look to build on the improved international relations that have allowed ULEB to be actively involved in discussions and decision making on a number of levels, always looking to protect our members’ interests.

As for the future of ULEB, we are aiming to optimize the internal functioning of the organization with the installment of a strategic committee that will be exploring ULEB expansion and partnership development amongst other things.”
