One B License is reserved for the Turkish Airlines Euroleague Qualifying Round champion.
Turkish Airlines Euroleague Qualifying Round spots will also follow the country ranking.
As stated in the Euroleague Basketball Bylaws, Euroleague Basketball reserves the right to allocate wildcards in the Turkish Airlines Euroleague Qualifying Round.

The C Licence corresponds to the Eurocup champion, BC Khimki Moscow Region.
In the case that the Eurocup champion also earns the right to participate in the Turkish Airlines Euroleague through the country ranking regarding its national league final standing (B Licence), the C Licence will automatically become a wildcard.
*All wildcards will be proposed by the Board and confirmed by the General Assembly.
