2011-12 Turkish Airlines Euroleague teams
June 20, 2011
With the conclusion of the domestic league competitions all around Europe over the weekend, the teams that will aspire to become the next Turkish Airlines Euroleague champion, starting from both the Regular Season and the Qualifying Rounds, are almost fully known now.
A total 21 teams from 13 countries have already qualified directly for the 2011-12 Regular Season through a combination of long-term A licenses, B licenses won through results in national and regional championships, and one C license for the Eurocup Champion. The final remaining spot in the Regular Season is a wild card created when Lottomatica Roma finished the 2010-11 season in the bottom half of the Italian League final standings. This wild card needs to be confirmed by the Euroleague General Assembly.
The two remaining spots in the 24-team Regular Season will come from the Turkish Airlines Euroleague Qualifying Rounds, which features 16 more teams from at least 12 countries, including five new ones not yet represented in the Regular Season. Of the 16 qualifying round teams, 13 have earned their places through their national or regional championship results. One wild card is already known due to this being the final year of a three year agreement with the French League (LNB), one is a wild card created when Dutch League (FEB) champion Zorg en Zekerheid Leiden renounced their position, and one other is a wild card to be named shortly.
Draws for both the Regular Season and Qualifying Rounds will be held on Thursday, July 7 in Barcelona, Spain.
