FIBA SuproLeague

The Suproleague is a set basketball competition, which was held under the auspices of FIBA.

After the founding of the Association competition ULEB, the world governing body FIBA saw himself faced with the situation that more and more clubs and associations from their own competitions leaked and joined those of the ULEB. To counter this trend called the FIBA for the 2000/2001 season, the Suproleague from. Unlike its counterpart, the ULEB Euro League, it did not succeed in charge of the league to win attractive enough teams for this competition. With Maccabi Tel Aviv, Panathinaikos, CSKA Moscow and Efes Pilsen Istanbul thus included only four of the twenty teams for the European elite. Not only for this reason, the competition was canceled after only one season. With ALBA Berlin and Bayer Leverkusen Giants also two German teams were represented.

In the summer of 2001, ULEB and FIBA finally agreed that henceforth the ULEB with the Euro League should unsubscribe the main competition in Europe.

As winner of the competition once discharged showed the Israeli team Maccabi Tel Aviv, which defeated the Greek champions Panathinaikos Athens in the final 81-67 in Paris.
