Why watch Basketball Champions League Live Streaming?


Now on its second season, the Basketball Champions League or BCL aims to give clubs not competing in the Euroleague or EuroCup a chance to play teams outside of their domestic leagues. Players from these clubs will also get additional exposure that could lead to greener pastures in the future. An example is last year's regular season MVP Jordan Theodore, who is now playing for Italian powerhouse Milano. 

This year's competition promises to be more intense with the champion clubs of France (Elan Chalon), Italy (Umana Reyer Venezia), Poland (Stelmet Zielona Gora) and Slovenia (Petrol Olimpija) among those competing. 

Basketball Champions League Format


This year's BCL featured three qualifying rounds with the qualifiers making it to the 32-team regular season. The clubs were then divided into four groups of eight teams. Each team will play its groupmates twice using a home-and-away format for a total of 14 games per team. 

Regular Season
Group A is made up of Monaco (France), Enisey (Russia), UCAM Murcia (Spain), Pinar Karsiyaka (Turkey), Dinamo Sassari (Italy), Hapoel Unet Holon (Israel), EWE Baskets Oldenburg (Germany) and Juventus (Lithuania) while Group B is composed of defending champion Tenerife (Spain), MHP Riesen Ludwigsburg (Germany), Gaziantep (Turkey), Neptunas (Lithuania), Ventspils (Latvia), Elan Chalon (France), SikeliArchivi Capo d'Orlando (Italy) and PAOK (Greece). 

Competing in Group C are last season's runner-up Banvit (Turkey), Medi Bayreuth (Germany), Strasbourg (France), Movistar Estudiantes (Spain), Umana Reyer Venezia (Italy), AEK Athens (Greece), Petrol Olimpija (Slovenia) and Rosa Radom (Poland) while featuring in Group D are Nanterre (France), Oostende (Belgium), Sidigas Avellino (Italy), Aris (Greece), Besiktas (Turkey), Stelmet Zielona Góra (Poland), Telekom Baskets Bonn (Germany) and CEZ Nymburk (Czech Republic).

The top four teams in each group will advance to the Round-of-16 while fifth and sixth placers will proceed to the FIBA Europe Cup Round-of-16.  

Playoffs
The Round-of-16 and quarterfinals will be a two-legged series and will be played on a home-and-away basis. The survivors will then proceed to the knockout Final Four. The finale and bronze-medal playoff will also be a knockout affair.

Basketball Champions League History


The Basketball Champions League was conceptualized by FIBA Europe in 2015 to rival the Euroleague. 

Organizers tried to lure the top clubs in the continent to leave the Euroleague and participate in the inaugural season of the BCL in 2016-17.

However, the teams declined and the new league was left with lower-ranked teams from domestic leagues across the continent. FIBA Europe used to run the Euroleague until 2000 when Euroleague Basketball was formed and took charge of the top-tier basketball league along with the second-tier EuroCup.

Spanish club Iberostar Tenerife emerged as the inaugural BCL champion after beating Turkish side Banvit 63-59 in last year's final in San Cristóbal de La Laguna.
