There are 18 teams bidding for the EuroLeague, and many current and former WNBA players appearing on EuroLeagueCup rosters. The 18 teams are divided into three groups of six teams. The Qualifying Round pits teams in each conference against one another with teams facing each conference opponent two times.
The top 16 teams qualify and move on to the Eighth-Final round and the matchups in the best of three series are 1-16, 2-15, 3-14, 4-13, 5-12, 6, 11, 7-10 and 8-9. The eight winners meat in the quarterfinals, those four winners then advance the Final Four and so on until a champion is crowned.
This will be the 15th season that the EuroLeague competition will take place. Brno defeated Samara in 2006 after Samara beat Brno in the finals back in 2005.
