The 2012-13 Eurocup groups have been announced. 32 clubs from 17 countries will participate toward the eventual crowning of the competition’s champion next April.
The six-game Eurocup regular season will begin on November 7 and finish on December 12, with the best two of each group’s four teams advancing. Games resume on January 9, with the opening of the Last 16 round, which consists of six more games for each team, ending February 20. Again, the best two teams from each group advance, this time to the Eurocup Quarterfinals, head-to-head two-game home-and-away series decided on aggregate score between March 6 and 13. This season, the Eurocup will relive the semifinals round, which divides the four quarterfinals winners for another, two-game home-and-away series between March 20 and 27. Then, in a return to the Eurocup Final, the two semifinals winners will meet in a single game to decide a champion on April 13, 2013.
