They were barely able to fill that little arena in Vilnius back then, let alone the big hall next door.
Lietuvos Rytas was 3rd by attendance in Euroleague last year, right behind Panathinaikos and Maccabi, averaging 10.293 spectators every game. The arena was on average filled 94%.

Wow, where did all the people come from? That is staggering. There might have been 3 or 4k tops when I was going.

It was fantastic standard, the beer was cold and cheap, the cheerleaders gorgeous. Better than that soccer shit over in England.

It's a ******* joke, you spend like 50 quid and come home with no goals, a black eye and completely sober in England.

I guess they don't call it Rip off Britain for nothing!?

Mhm, Vilnius. 10.000 spectators on average is not that much. Local league and Baltic league games of course attract only 4-5k on average, but euroleague is another story. Tickets cost like 10-25 euros, bear is great and cheap and the level of basketball is very high. And we love basketball. All the reasons for the arenas to be full.

Siemens in Vilnius, with only 11.000 seats, is one of the loudest arenas in Europe, (take into account that NBA is in stoneage compared to atmosphere in EL games) only clubs like Panathinaikos or Partizan and perhaps Maccabi could argue with Vilnius having the best crowd right now. A sound record was broken a couple of time in a single game last year against Unicaja Malaga and it stands firm, as it was broken with a hefty margin. I was literally deaf after that game for an hour or so...

Thus i just cannot wait for new Kaunas arena. With 15.000 spectators, the atmosphere shall be mind-blowing.

One transport bridge is done this year marked in the picture of old French proposal of arena in red colour. Another will be built at the end of constructions in the bottom of the island on picture. And there is a proposal of another bridge over the main river marked in green colour.

I have actually walked on that bridge, but how on earth should traffic for 12000 people be handled on the roads near Akropolis?

well, 15 k people actually, but I dont think that even half of them will be coming to arena by car and if they will so there's nothing impressive there, cause K.Mindaugo street near akropolis and arena has 4-5 lines each way.

So Lithuania has these superb ediface's now, the envy of the world. Surely they will push to get a franchise in that Russian hockey league, the Kontinental Hockey League or Континентальная Хоккейная Лига.

Hockey has a bit of a following in those parts and you get cities like Riga and Minsk with sides, then surely Vilniaus should put a team in. It's all down to stadium economics in the end. They have the stadiums now to make it all work.

It will give Lithuanian players and fans a good chance to settle old scores with the old oppressors too. Nothing better than a good toe-to-toe hockey fight to bring out the blood-lust in all of us.

The Lithuania v. Serbia hockey fight that's on Youtube is superb, the fans singing the national anthem and the Lithuanians putting those Serbians into hospital. Marvellous.

Akropolis parking is the main parking lot for the arena, but there will be a 1000 or 1500 (cant remember true number) spaces parking lot in island near arena. So don't think there'll be any problems with that 2

Lithuania has always been a basketball country. You'll have wonderful arenas. You deserve that. Regards from Slovenia!

I would say it is not the average height that is impressive, it is the amount of people over 200 cm. (In my home country of Sweden it is not uncommon that kids that grow that much receive hormons (anti-hormons?) to stop growing. Pretty destructive for basketball developement, but good for football development )

You have two strikers that can control the ball, and are over 200cms. How would a team of midgets(ie: English, Brazilians or Argentinians) be able to do anything about it.

Remember that Jan Koller guy for Czech, he was deadly.

I love small countries with great basketball tradition. Slovenia is such case, actually all countries in former Yugoslavia. Lithuania is also such case. Žalgiris gave so many excellent players, fans are wonderfull and the Euro in Lithuania will surely be the best so far! Regards from Slovenia
