The final of the competition was held on April 15, 1993 at the Peace and Friendship Stadium in Athens, Greece, with Limoges defeating Benetton Treviso 59-55.

Automatically qualified to the group stage

*Crvena zvezda was drawn for the competition but was not allowed to compete due to UN embargo on FR Yugoslavia. PAOK went through with a walkover.

**Partizan was drawn for the competition but was not allowed to compete due to UN embargo on FR Yugoslavia. FIBA decided not to replace Partizan with another team for the Regular Season Group Stage, so the 15 qualified clubs had to be unevenly distributed in this round (a group of 8 teams and another of only 7).
