“We finished the third Corona season. Very successful again in sport, with a great atmosphere – it was a very worthy honor. If someone had said it to me at the beginning of the season, with spectators and good games, I would have signed it . We did it again, “said Holz in Munich to the German Press Agency.
The official was in the fourth final game, in which Alba Berlin secured its eleventh championship title by beating FC Bayern Munich. “Definitely a deserved German champion – as the winner of the main round. In the end, they were the better team over the four games against Bayern,” said Holz.
The fact that more than 1000 seats in the Audi Dome in Munich remained empty during the decisive game does not concern the league boss. “We had 35 degrees, the weather was bomb outside. The issue is the short term. To fill the hall within two days – it was perfectly fine, perfectly fine.” The sale could only begin on Friday evening after game three because it was not clear beforehand whether there would be a fourth final.
