The 1976–77 FIBA European Cup Winner's Cup was the eleventh edition of FIBA's competition for European basketball national cup champions, running from 20 October 1976 to 29 March 1977. It was contested by 25 teams, five more than in the previous edition.[1]

Italy became the first country to win the competition twice in a row for a second time when Forst Cantù defeated Radnički Belgrade in the final held in Palma de Mallorca. Cantù had previously defeated defending champions Cinzano Milano in the semi finals, in the competition's third tie between two clubs from the same country. Cantù was the fourth Italian club to win the Cup Winners' Cup after Ignis Varese, Fides Napoli and Olimpia Milano.
