1 Sponsored league name, referring to Turkish Airlines.

This was the first season in which the competition changed to a competition format, with sixteen teams playing each other in a round-robin competition. Regular season groups were abolished, as well as the Top 16 group stage.

The Final Four was hosted by the Sinan Erdem Dome in Istanbul, Turkey.[1] Fenerbahçe won its inaugural European championship in its home city after defeating Olympiacos in the final.[2]

Format changesEdit

In July 2015, FIBA tried to take the helm of the EuroLeague, by trying to convince eight of the eleven teams with an A-Licence to play in a new competition organized by FIBA instead of the current EuroLeague.[3] This proposal was unanimously rejected by the EuroLeague clubs.[4] In October 2015, FIBA attempted to take back control of Europe's first tier club competition,[5][6] by proposing that the Basketball Champions League become Europe's new 1st tier competition, with 16 teams playing in a round-robin format, granting eight guaranteed spots to different clubs.

In November 2015, Euroleague Basketball agreed to a 10-year joint venture with IMG.[7] In its press release, the EuroLeague announced a new competition format for the 2016–17 season, with only 16 teams, including the eleven licensed clubs (Anadolu Efes, Baskonia, CSKA Moscow, FC Barcelona, Fenerbahçe, Maccabi Tel Aviv, Olimpia Milan, Olympiacos, Panathinaikos, Real Madrid, and Žalgiris).

The regular season features a single group with a double round-robin. The first eight qualified teams will then play in a best-of-five playoff round for qualification to the Final Four. As a result, the maximum number of games per team increased from 31 to 37.

Team allocationEdit

A total of 16 teams participated in the 2016–17 EuroLeague.[8] The labels in the parentheses show how each team qualified for the place of its starting round (TH: EuroLeague title holders). Eleven teams were placed as Licensed Clubs, long-term licenses, while five spots were given to Associated Clubs, based on merit.[8][9]

  • LC: Qualified through a licensed club with a long-term licence
  • 1st, 2nd, etc.: League position after Playoffs
  • EC: EuroCup champion
  • WC: Wild card
