The 2012–13 Euroleague was the 13th season of the modern era of Euroleague Basketball and the third under the title sponsorship of the Turkish Airlines. Including the competition's previous incarnation as the FIBA Europe Champions Cup, this was the 56th season of the premier competition for European men's clubs. The season started on 11 October 2012 and finished on 12 May 2013.

The Final Four was held at The O2 Arena in London. The championship game was won by Olympiacos, who defeated Real Madrid 100–88. Olympiacos became the just third team since the introduction of the Final Four format to win two Euroleague championships in a row and the second team in Euroleague Basketball Company era (Euroleague 2000–01 season to present) to become back-to-back Euroleague champions.

Allocation[edit]

A total of 31 teams participated in the 2012–13 Euroleague. There were three routes to participation in the Euroleague:

  • The top 13 teams with an A-Licence from the 2011–12 Euroleague based on their Euroleague Club Ranking.[1]
  • An additional team promoted to an A-Licence.
  • The 2011–12 Eurocup winner was given a C-Licence.
  • 14 places were allocated from a list of 28 teams given a B-Licence ranked according to their European national basketball league rankings over the last year. 14 teams were given both an A-Licence or C-Licence and a B-Licence. When a country ranking spot had already been assigned to an A-Licence team, the assignation jumped to the next country appearing in the ranking, and their league was not granted an additional place in the competition. The first 8 of the remaining 16 teams were given places in the regular-season, and the next 6 were given places in the qualifying competition. The last 2 places from the Netherlands and Latvia were not taken up.
  • As the list of teams with a B-Licence was exhausted, two wild cards were granted to fill the remaining spaces in the qualifying competition.
