The 2013–14 Eurocup Basketball season was the 12th edition of Europe's second-tier level transnational competition for men's professional basketball clubs, the Eurocup. The Eurocup is the league level that is one level below the Euroleague. Valencia BC, the winner of this competition earned a place at the group stage of the next season's Euroleague.[1] Valencia beat Unics Kazan in two legs. It was the first time since the 2002–03 season the Finals were played over two games.

Competition format changes[edit]

The competition increases from 32 to 48 teams in the Regular Season phase. The size of the groups will grow to six teams, where the first three qualified teams will join the Last 32 stage. Another innovation this season will see clubs divided into two regional conferences for the Regular Season phase.[2]

Euroleague clubs that do not qualify for the Euroleague Top 16 will join the remaining 24 Eurocup teams for the Last 32 phase.

Teams[edit]

48 teams will participate in Eurocup Regular Season. 41 of them will qualify directly to this stage with the seven losers of the Euroleague Qualifying Rounds.[3] For the Last 32, eight teams who didn't make the Top 16 in the 2013–14 Euroleague would enter.

Draw[edit]

The draws for the 2013–14 Eurocup were held on Saturday, 5 October, after the Euroleague Qualifying Rounds were played.[9]

Teams were divided into two geographical conferences with 24 teams and 4 groups each. For the each conference teams were seeded into six pots of four teams in accordance with the Club Ranking, based on their performance in European competitions during a three-year period.

Two teams from the same country could not be drawn together in the same Regular Season group if possible. Liga ABA teams (Serbia, Croatia, Slovenia, Montenegro, Macedonia and Bosnia and Herzegovina) are considered as same country teams.[10]
