The FIBA Korać Cup was an annual basketball club competition held by FIBA between the 1971–72 and 2001–02 seasons. It was the third-tier level club competition in European basketball, after the FIBA European Champions' Cup (later renamed the Euroleague) and the FIBA Cup Winners' Cup (later renamed the FIBA Saporta Cup). The very last Korać Cup season was held during the 2001–02 season.


History[edit]

The Korać Cup was named after the legendary Yugoslav player Radivoj Korać, killed in 1969 in a car accident near Sarajevo. The Korać Cup is not to be confused with the Serbian national basketball cup competition, the Radivoj Korać Cup, which has been named after Radivoj Korać since the mid-2000s, next year after the international Korać Cup got dissolved. Following the 2011 agreement between FIBA Europe and the Basketball Federation of Serbia, the actual winner's trophy given out for 30 years in the Korać Cup (the so-called "Žućko's left") will from 2012 onwards, be given to the winning team of the Serbian national cup competition.[1]
