Default Euroleague Officially Adds 8 Games To The Season And Friday Game Days

http://www.euroleague.net/news/i/92299/180

The second competition system modification will expand the Turkish Airlines Euroleague Top 16 by dividing the best teams coming from the regular season into two Groups (E and F) rather than the previous four. With this change, the Top 16 Draw will be eliminated. The two new Top 16 groups would be composed based on regular-season standings, as follows:

Group E: A1, B2, C3, D4, C1, D2, A3, B4
Group F: B1, C2, D3, A4, D1, A2, B3, C4

The effect of the change to two groups means that the Turkish Airlines Euroleague Top 16 will expand from the current six games to a total of 14 per group.

Besides these competition system modifications, another important change to be implemented in the 2012-13 season will make the official Turkish Airlines Euroleague game days Thursday and Friday of each playing week. This change to Friday games has already been tested during the current season on two occasions, in regular season Game 1 between Gescrap BB and Olympiacos and in Game 3 between Panathinaikos and Zalgiris, with positive results in both arena attendance and TV audiences.

I just hope Partizan will be in top 16 next season . As long as CSKA has Teodosic , Krstic and Kirilenko they will win Euroleague no matter how much games they need to play so othere teams would have better chance if it would be the same system as in WC ( everyone can win in one game ) .

CSKA is absolutely not guaranteed to win Euroleague. You are starting to sound like the NBA only fans.

I know that everything can happen in one game but I dont see a team that can beat CSKA before F4 if CSKA continous to play like this . You got to agree that they played best basketball in Euroleague I only see Barcelona who played that good but I think CSKA played better .

Let's see...CSKA was "unbeatable" in 2005 and 2007.......Panathinaikos was "unbeatable" in 2008 and 2010.........Barca was "unbeatable" in 2011.......

all of them failed to win the championship.

Sure, CSKA might be the favorite, but to say there is no way they can't win the title, even this year and next year, is ridiculous. CSKA has had more dominant teams than this one, that didn't even win the title.

That one year they won something like 50 games in a row in all their competitions and didn't end up winning the Euroleague title............

There is no way that you can claim that CSKA is guaranteed a Euroleague title.

No one is unbeatable and anyone can win in one game but I m saying that I dont see a team that can beat CSKA in top 8 . In F4 CSKA could lose because they allow their opponents to shoot for 3pt too much ( my oppinion ) . I think this season CSKA will win because a lot of great players there never won Euroleague title ( Krstic , Teodosic ... ) and they will try harder to win it this season than lets say Phanatinaikos were their best players won Euroleague and are getting older . And you didnt mention Barcelona in 2009 , they were the best and they won , and I dont remember that people were saying that Barcelona in 2010 is unbeatable , they were third in there group .

Completely RETARDED idea, and very selfish from the Euroleague organizers.
Are teams gonna play two games in 4 days (Thursday to Sunday), and around 60 games per season, without being at disadvantage with other teams that only focus on their domestic leagues?

WRONG. The top teams will get much more practice and game experience and against better teams to boot. It will become harder and harder to make the leap to qualify because the qualified teams will keep getting better.

I don't agree. Judging the teams I know, for example:
* Barcelona and Madrid got the money and rosters to compete with this stronger schedule.
* Caja Laboral and Unicaja DON'T. The more games they play, the harder it will be for them to play 100% every game. Specially for Caja Laboral, considering how Ivanovic manages his rosters. These two will have serious problems in the ACB league.

Also, if you need more proof, just see how Bilbao plays when there's no Euroleague game during the week, compared to when there isn't.

Who cares? The ACB has minimized the other leagues through their policies and favoritism through their power in Euroleague. So the ACB deserves to end up just like the other leagues did.

The ACB will probably end up like all the other domestic leagues and it is their own greedy policies that cause it.

They are the ones responsible for taking down leagues like Greece and Russia, while pushing leagues like France. They were morons to think it would not backfire on them.

Now, they are in the same boat as all the other leagues. The only teams that matter are Real Madrid and Barca. If the owners of teams like Bilbao and Valencia, etc. don't like it then too bad. They can pull their money from the clubs.

There were no complaints at all from the ACB when their own policies were destroying the other domestic leagues in the same manner they are now destroying the ACB, which will be a 3-4 team league very shortly.

Face reality. The Euroleague is going to a semi-closed model that focuses on clubs like CSKA, Siena, Milan, PAO, Olympiacos, Barca, Real, Malaga, Baskonia, Efes, Fener, Maccabi, some trash French club.......teams like this will become permanent franchises.

The rest of the clubs can go to hell and only be relevant as long as their owners spend tons of money. Look at what happened to Aris. It was a club with huge tradition, incredible fan base, 15 million euros a year budget, and a huge new state of the art arena approved.........

then Euroleague decided it did not deserve to be in Euroleague (even after making top 16) and that they only wanted 2 Greek clubs. Where is Aris now? On the scrap heap of mediocrity as a mid-level Eurocup club with below average attendance, a 3 million euros budget, and problems then to finish the new arena.

Not to even mention what they did to a club like AEK.

This is the exact model that ACB/Euroleague have been using to the other clubs from other countries and it ruined all but the biggest super clubs. Now when these policies start to affect smaller ACB clubs it is a big complaint. It's hypocritical and they should have thought of it earlier.

But they were too greedy for money and wanted to follow the NBA model. I mean look at how they coddle French clubs just because of "TV ratings of the French market". They are overly obsessed with following the NBA model and that's just the way it goes.

Clubs like Bilbao are just the Spanish version of Aris (with less history). They don't fit in the plans of the Euroleague and so they don't matter. It's just that now this is starting to backfire on the ACB, as it is affecting their league as well. ACB will end up the same way.

Look at what they did to the Russian clubs. They would not even allow a second Russian club in the Euroleague for years, and still to the this time now, they can't even get in Euroleague as the 2nd placed Russian club without going through the qualifying round.

Face it, they are strictly operating now for the super big clubs and really, they just want the other clubs like Bilbao to go away. We may not like it as fans, but it's just the reality of what their agenda is. And remember that it's the big clubs like Barca, Real, CSKA, Maccabi, PAO, Olympiacos, Efes, Fener that are behind it.
