FIBA European Champions Cup seasons

The 1961–62 FIBA European Champions Cup season was the fifth season of the European top-tier level professional basketball club competition FIBA European Champions Cup (now called EuroLeague). It was won by Dinamo Tbilisi, after they beat Real Madrid, in the first ever single game EuroLeague Final, by a result of 90–83, in Geneva, Switzerland. For the first time, only one finals game was played, on a neutral court, due to the unstable political situation at the time.
