EuroCup Basketball History
The feeder league into the EuroLeague, EuroCup teams are the "next best" clubs in Europe. The EuroCup, run by the EuroLeague since 20002, is the second-level transnational league in Europe.
EuroCup Basketball is commonly known as the EuroCup and currently it is called 7DAYS EuroCup for sponsorship reasons.
Many of the teams have multimillion-dollar budgets and often bounce between the EuroLeague and EuroCup depending upon their success the previous season. Qualifying for the competition is based on a team's success in its domestic league, other competitions and by invitation from the EuroLeague. Success in the EuroCup allows a team to move up the EuroLeague the following season so the winner of the EuroCup qualifies for the next season's EuroLeague.
EuroCup was Founded: 7 July 2002 (18 years ago)
Number of teams in the season: 24 teams.
Promotion to: EuroLeague
Defending champion (2018-19 season): Valencia Basket (4th title)

On May 25, 2020, Euroleague and EuroCup Basketball decided to cancel its competition. "Having explored every possible option, the Executive Board has made the decision to cancel the 2019-20 EuroLeague and EuroCup," the organising body said in a statement.

- The 2020-21 7DAYS EuroCup draw was held on Friday, July 10, 2020.
Following the completion of the EuroCup Draw held in Barcelona, Spain, we all know which teams first opponents will be in Regular Season action, as well as the whole path to the title, as the Top 16 and the playoffs don't require further draws. At the end of the season, the EuroCup champion will qualify to play in the 2021-22 Turkish Airlines EuroLeague, and the runner-up will also go through if both teams that reached the previous EuroCup Finals, Valencia Basket and ALBA Berlin, don't finish the 2021-EuroLeague in playoffs territory.
The upcoming 2020-21 7DAYS EuroCup may be the strongest in competition history. Seven of the teams that made it to the EuroCup playoffs last season, right before it was cancelled due to the COVID-19 situation, are back to the competition: Partizan NIS Belgrade, Unicaja Malaga, AS Monaco, Promitheas Patras, Segafredo Virtus Bologna, Umana Reyer Venice, and UNICS Kazan. The competition features four former champions (Unicaja, UNICS, Joventut Badalona and Lokomotiv Kuban Krasnodar), as well as three former Turkish Airlines EuroLeague winners (Virtus, Partizan and Joventut). There are three newcomers (Bahcesehir College Istanbul, Frutti Extra Bursaspor and JL Bourg) and four national cup winners (Buducnost VOLI Podgorica, Partizan, Telenet Giants Antwerp and Umana Reyer Venice).
It all adds up to an ambitious group of teams, all seeking a double reward: the 2020-21 7DAYS EuroCup title and a spot in the 2021-22 EuroLeague!
