Europe's premier club basketball competition, the Euroleague, consists of teams from up to 18 different countries and is watched in almost 200 nations around the world. The competition began life in 1958 as the European Champions' Cup and retained that moniker until the year 2000 when it became the Euroleague, and has gone from strength to strength ever since.

Clubs from Spain, Russia, Greece and Israel have dominated the tournament since its inception with Real Madrid, Barcelona, CSKA Moscow, Panathinaikos, Olympiakos and Maccabi Tel Aviv all winning the competition multiple times.

Euroleague's regular season kicks off in October each year and ends in May. In 2016, the league introduced a new format where 16 teams will play a double round-robin in the regular season with the top eight teams advancing to the playoffs.

The league usually consists of domestic champions from the leading countries in Europe, but this is not always the case, for example, the runners up in Spain's Liga ACB earn qualification to the competition.  

Real Madrid is the most successful club in the Euroleague with nine titles and eight runner-up finishes. CSKA Moscow is ranked second with seven titles followed by Maccabi Tel Aviv and Panathinaikos with six apiece. Varese has five titles that were all won in the 1970s while Olympiacos, Milano, ASK Riga and Split have three each.
