Eight teams join FIBA Europe Cup from Basketball Champions League

MUNICH (FIBA Europe Cup) – The first dispatch of teams from the Basketball Champions League is an extensive one, with eight clubs set to continue their international campaigns in the FIBA Europe Cup.

After falling short in Qualification Round 1 of the Basketball Champions League, the teams will be placed directly in the Group Phase of the FIBA Europe Cup, as determined by the draw.

Tsmoki-Minsk (BLR), AEK Larnaca (CYP), Leicester Riders (GBR), Szolnoki Olaj and CSU Oradea (ROU) arrive to the competition having won national titles last season, while Z Mobile Prishtina (KOS), FC Porto (POR) finished as runners-up.

The only other inbound team, Avtodor Saratov (RUS) also enjoyed a strong domestic campaign in the 2017-18 season, placing 5th in a highly competitive VTB United League.

A fair number of spots remain to be filled in the 32-team Regular Season, with the remaining 18 vacancies to be confirmed via the FIBA Europe Cup Qualifiers and other incoming teams from the Basketball Champions League.
