After qualifying a place in the preliminaries, the quarter finals will see Sidigas Avellino take on Vanoli Cremona, Venezia Umana Reyer Venezia vs Fiat Torino, Emporio Armani Milano vs Red October Cantù and Germani Brescia vs Segafredo Virtus Bologna.


The Coppa Italia, founded in 1968, has been held regularly since 1984. While the format of the competition has changed over the years, since 2000 eight teams have been ranked to compete for the trophy in back-to-back rounds. The three-day tournament for the men’s division will take place from February 15 to 18 at the Mandela Forum.


The games will be broadcast on Rai Sport and Eurosport and tickets are available.
