Proposed team list for the 2015-16 Turkish Airlines Euroleague and Eurocup

Jun 29, 2015 by Euroleague.net Print
Proposed team list for the 2015-16 Turkish Airlines Euroleague and Eurocup

The proposed lists of participating teams for the 2015-16 Turkish Airlines Euroleague and 2015-16 Eurocup have been reviewed by the members of the Euroleague Commercial Assets Executive Board following the criteria approved during the last ECA Shareholders Meeting, held on May 6 in Istanbul. The lists will be submitted to the ECA Shareholders Meeting for approval on July 8, 2015.

For the Euroleague, in addition to the 11 teams with A Licences the list is comprised of Limoges CSP as French League champion, Stelmet Zielona Gora as Polish League champion, Crvena Zvezda Telekom Belgrade and Cedevita Zagreb as Adriatic League champion and runner-up, respectively, Khimki Moscow Region as Russian League runner-up (VTB United League), Brose Baskets Bamberg as German League champion and Dinamo Banco Di Sardegna Sassari as Italian League champion. The Board has also proposed to provisionally grant one B Licence to the Turkish League champion this summer (Pinar Karsiyaka Izmir) for the 2015-16 Euroleague season only. This direct qualification is conditional on the creation of a professional basketball league in Turkey over the next 12 months, as is already the case in all other Euroleague markets.

FC Bayern Munich, Strasbourg, Lokomotiv Kuban Krasnodar and Darussafaka Dogus Istanbul are the teams proposed to receive one-year wild cards to play in the 2015-16 Euroleague. The Board evaluated a number of different criteria before proposing the wild cards, including market growth strategy and the competitive standard of the team, amongst others.

The complete list of 2015-16 Turkish Airlines Euroleague teams, as voted by the majority of the Board members, is as follows:

TEAMS COUNTRY DOMESTIC STANDINGS
Anadolu Efes Istanbul (A-Licence) Turkey Finalist
BC Khimki Moscow Region (B-Licence) Russia Finalist
Brose Baskets Bamberg (B-Licence) Germany Champion
*Cedevita Zagreb (B-Licence) Croatia Finalist ABA League
*Crvena Zevzda Telekom Belgrade (B-Licence) Serbia Champion ABA League
CSKA Moscow (A-Licence) Russia Champion
Darussafaka Dogus Istanbul (Wildcard) Turkey Quarterfinalist
Dinamo Banco di Sardegna Sassari (B-Licence) Italy Champion
EA7 Emporio Armani Milan (A-Licence) Italy Semifinalist
FC Barcelona (A-Licence) Spain Finalist
FC Bayern Munich (Wildcard) Germany Finalist
Fenerbahce Ulker Istanbul (A-Licence) Turkey Semifinalist
Laboral Kutxa Vitoria (A-Licence) Spain Quarterfinalist
Limoges CSP (B-Licence) France Champion
Lokomotiv Kuban Krasnodar (Wildcard) Russia Semifinalist
Maccabi Electra Tel Aviv (A-Licence) Israel Semifinalist
Olympiacos Piraeus (A-Licence) Greece Champion
Panathinaikos Athens (A-Licence) Greece Finalist
Pinar Karsiyaka Izmir (B-Licence) Turkey Champion
Real Madrid (A-Licence) Spain Champion
Stelmet Zielona Gora (B-Licence) Poland Champion
Strasbourg IG (Wildcard) France Finalist
**Unicaja Malaga (B-Licence) Spain Semifinalist
Zalgiris Kaunas (A-Licence) Lithuania Champion

* The registrations of teams from the ABA League will be considered complete only when the new ABA League including all participating teams submit the necessary documentation to ensure that it fulfills the criteria required of all domestic leagues including its relationship with ECA.

** Following the limitation of three A-Licences per country that the ECA Shareholders Meeting approved in Barcelona on July 9, 2014, Unicaja Malaga, as the lowest-ranked A-Licence team participating in the Spanish League has lost its A-Licence. Unicaja gains a spot in the 2015-16 Euroleague thorugh a B-Licence, being the best ranked team in the Spanish Domestic League without an A-Licence.

For the 2015-16 Eurocup the proposed list of 36 teams includes nine wild cards: AEK Athens and Aris Thessaloniki of Greece, Besiktas Integral Forex Istanbul and Galatasaray Liv Hospital Istanbul of Turkey, CAI Zaragoza of Spain, Enel Basket Brindisi of Italy, Krasny Oktyabr Volgograd of Russia, Neptunas Klaipeda of Lithuania and Steaua CSM EximBank Bucharest of Romania.

The complete list of 2015-16 Eurocup teams, as voted by the majority of the Board members, is as follows:

TEAMS COUNTRY DOMESTIC STANDINGS
AEK Athens (Wildcard) Greece Quarterfinalist
ALBA Berlin Germany Semifinalist
Aris Thessaloniki (Wildcard) Greece Semifinalist
