1 European professional club basketball system
Professional basketball clubs in Europe can compete in a number of different competitions, including national leagues, regional (multi-national) leagues, and continental competitions. It is therefore possible for clubs from some countries to take part in three levels of competition in the same season. Clubs usually qualify for European competitions through performance in their national or regional leagues.More
This season of the competition also marked an end to the era of European national domestic league champions only participation, as it featured an expanded competition, that included national domestic league champions, the current league title holders, and some other teams from the most important national domestic leagues. That also was in accordance with the league being renamed, and being called the FIBA European League (or shortened to FIBA EuroLeague) championship for men's clubs. This was because the new competition format was closer to a true European League in style. It was a name the competition would keep for the next four editions of the competition as well.

The final standing was based on individual wins and defeats. In the case of a tie between two or more teams after the group stage, the following criteria was used to decide the final classification: 1) number of wins in one-to-one games between the teams; 2) basket average between the teams; 3) general basket average within the group.
The top four teams from each group after the Regular Season Group Stage qualified for a Quarterfinal Playoff (X-pairings, best of 3 games).
