    FIBA: In Euroleague, teams finishing 6th in the Second Stage of 1998–99 FIBA EuroLeague (groups E-H) lose a berth for their country in next season. These berths are gained by those countries whose teams reach the Semi-Final Round in the 1998–99 FIBA Saporta Cup. As a general rule, a federation cannot have more than 3 teams in Euroleague. Should a semi-finalist in Saporta Cup provide one more berth for its country, in case it already has 3 berths assigned in Euroleague, this berth will be transferred to the next federation in FIBA Ranking which has 2 teams (as long as one of its teams reached the 1/4 Final Round in Saporta Cup during the same season)..
