The FIBA Americas League (Portuguese: FIBA Liga das Américas, Spanish: FIBA Liga de las Américas) is an international men's professional basketball club competition played annually by clubs of the Americas, and is organized by FIBA Americas. The winner is crowned as the best team and champion of all of the Americas. It is the first tier and most important professional club basketball competition in all of Latin America. The first edition started on December 4, 2007.[1]

Format[edit]

The 16 participating clubs are divided in four groups, of four teams each. The top two clubs of each group qualify for the quarterfinals. The quarterfinals winners play a four-team group stage, in a yet to be determined host city.[2]
