HistoryEdit

In 2003, the Cup got its name on proposal from Hemofarm, due to the abolition of the eponymous European competition and the name change of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia into the State Union of Serbia and Montenegro. After the separation of Serbia and Montenegro in, the Cup has become the national cup for Serbia.

According to the agreement from 2011 between the Basketball Federation of Serbia (KSS) and FIBA, KSS supported to give the original replica of the trophy of the FIBA Korać Cup to a national cup winner in Serbia. So this trophy (named Žućkova levica, transl. The Žućko's Left Hand) was first awarded to the Cup winner in 2013.[1][2]
