Table leader Rheinland Lions from the women’s basketball Bundesliga ends to play with immediate effect.

The DBBL and the sponsoring company of the Lions have agreed on this step “after the opening of the insolvency proceedings”, as both parties announced.

This means that all games played by the Lions so far in the current Bundesliga main round will be cancelled, and the team will be removed from the table and will be relegated. VfL Bochum, their opponents in the cup quarterfinals, will receive a walk-through.
