Conference Qualifying Round:

There are 48 teams bidding for the Europe Cup, and many current and former WNBA players appearing on Europe Cup rosters. The 48 teams are divided into four conferences (West, North, South and Central), and each conference is split into anywhere from two to four groups with three or four teams per group. The Conference Qualifying Round pits teams in each conference against one another with teams facing each conference opponent two times.

The top two teams in each conference advance to the Pan-European Qualifying Round and are divided up into six groups of four teams. Once again, each team plays the other three teams in its group two times. Eight teams advance to the next round – the six teams that win their respective groups and the top two second-place finishers.

These eight teams are seeded one through eight, with the one seed playing the eight seed, the two seed playing the seven seed, etc. in best two-out-of three series. Those four teams advance to the Europe Cup final four, which is a single-game elimination round similar to the NCAA Men’s and Women’s Basketball Championships.
