FIBA Saporta Cup was the name of the second-tier level European professional club basketball competition, where the National Cup winners from all over Europe played against each other. The competition was organized by FIBA Europe. It was named after Raimundo Saporta, a Real Madrid director.

History[edit]

The competition was created in 1966, as the European Cup Winner's Cup, but it had several denominations until its eventual folding in 2002:

The very last Saporta Cup season was held during the 2001–02 season. After that, it was fused with the Korać Cup, into the newly formed ULEB Cup competition, now known as the Eurocup.
