REGULAR SEASON DRAW CRITERIA & PROCEDURE


GROUP DRAW

The draw will be held according to seeds.

GROUP DRAW RESTRICTIONS

The restriction when drawing the teams into groups is the following:

  • 2 teams from the same country cannot coincide in the same Regular Season group, except for Spain that has five (5) teams participating in the competition.
GROUP DRAW PROCEDURE

  • Teams will be drawn one by one from an urn containing only teams in the same Seed, from the 1 Seeds through to the 6 Seeds, until all 24 teams have been selected. The last two spots will be allocated to the QR teams.
  • For each spot drawn, the urn will be emptied and refilled with only those teams from the level drawn, taking into consideration any restrictions.
  • In the Regular Season, teams from the same country may not coincide in the same group, except the case of Spain. Therefore, when drawing teams from the 2 Seeds through to the 6 Seeds, only those teams from a country different than the ones already drawn into the Group will be placed in the urn. The exception will take place with the 4 Seeds, when the fifth team from Spain is drawn.
  • e.g.1. If a spot is to be drawn into a Group where there is already a team from a specific country, the teams from the country in question will not be placed in the urn.
  • e.g.2. If a spot is to be drawn into a Group and a certain team(s) cannot be drawn in a later Group, this team(s) will be the only ones placed in the urn.
  • A team may be placed directly into a Group in order to follow the restriction mentioned above.
Drawing the teams as explained above, will allow all restrictions to be respected and will eliminate all possibilities of a blocked situation.

If after the Qualifying Rounds, a team qualified is from a country where there is already a representative in the same group, it will trade places with the other qualified team as long as this does not produce the same scenario.

CALENDAR DRAW

A random computer draw will determine the final position of teams within their group.

  • The Regular Season calendar draw will allocate letters from A to F to the teams in each group. This will establish the match-ups for the entire Regular Season.

  • The Regular Season games will be held according to the following chart:
    Game Day 1 F-C | D-B | E-A Game Day 6
    Game Day 2 A-F | B-E | C-D Game Day 7
    Game Day 3 F-D | E-C | A-B Game Day 8
    Game Day 4 F-B | C-A | D-E Game Day 9
    Game Day 5 E-F | A-D | B-C Game Day 10
Non-coincidence letters: (when one team plays at home, the other plays away): A with D; B with F; C with E.

CALENDAR DRAW RESTRICTIONS

  • Specific letters will be allocated to the teams participating in the Euroleague Opening Game.

  • Teams playing in the same city/arena (Anadolu Efes Istanbul and Fenerbahce Ulker Istanbul, Olympiacos Piraeus and Panathinaikos Athens): non-coincidence letters will be allocated to teams that play in the same city/arena, so that when one team plays at home the other will play away.
