The Supercopa de España de Baloncesto (English: Spanish Supercup of Basketball) is a Spanish annual men's professional basketball competition. The competition is a super cup tournament. It is a competition created in 1984 by the recently established Asociación de Clubes de Baloncesto (ACB) in which the league winner faces the cup winner in a single-game final. During its first four editions (1984–1987), the supercup was also known as Federation Cup, as the tournament was jointly organized by the Spanish Basketball Federation (FEB), and it was held in the middle of the regular season. In 1988–89 season, the supersup was not played for lack of competitive interest, and finally it was officially cancelled at the beginning of the 1989–90 season.

In 2004, almost two decades after its demise, ACB restored this classic tournament and renamed it Supercopa ACB (since 2011 known as Supercopa Endesa for sponsoring reasons). In order to achieve a higher competitive status, it was moved to the ACB pre-season and turned into a typical Final Four stage, including both the League and Cup winners from the previous season, the host team and the best qualified Spanish club in European competitions.

Format[edit]

Teams that take part in this competition are:[1]

  1. Host team
  2. Liga ACB champion
