The Euroleague Final Four is the final four format championship of the Euroleague professional club basketball competition. The Euroleague used the final four format for the first time during its modern era in the 1987–88 season. It is known as the Turkish Airlines Euroleague Final Four for sponsorship reasons. Panathinaikos has been the most successful team since the modern final four era began.

† The 2000–01 season was a transition year, with the best European teams split into two different major leagues, the SuproLeague 2000–01, held by FIBA, and the Euroleague 2000–01, held by Euroleague Basketball. That season's Euroleague Basketball tournament, the Euroleague 2000–01 season, did not end with a Final Four tournament. Instead, it ended with a 5 game playoff series. Manu Ginóbili was named the Euroleague Finals MVP that season.
