The EuroLeague Women (officially FIBA EuroLeague Women) is the highest professional basketball league in Europe for women’s clubs.

Unlike Euroleague for men, the competition is entirely organized by FIBA Europe.

History[edit]

System of competition[edit]

Between 2004–2011[edit]

24 clubs took part to the European most important competition. They were divided into 4 groups of 6 teams each with home and away games.

The 4 best-placed clubs in each group qualified for the eighth-final play-offs.

Eighth-final round was established according the standings (games won, games lost, goal-average) of each team in the preliminary round. This round was played in a home and away game.

The winners of the eighth-final round qualified for quarter-final round.

The winners of the quarter-final round qualified for the Final Four, organized by one of the qualified clubs. Semi-finals were played on Friday and finals on Sunday.
