1. Qualification round for teams with low FIBA Europe ranking points. The matches are played over two legs with the winner qualifying for the group phase. This was not the case last season (2009-2010) and again for the current season (2010-2011).
2. The play-off series and final are two legged matches played home and away with the results based on aggregate score.
During the group phase, the teams are normally split into groups of 4. The top teams from each group automatically qualify for the play-off. However in 2010-2011, there are 2 groups of 4 teams, 7 groups of 3 teams and 3 groups of 2 teams.
Depending on the number of participants, a number of places are offered to the best 3rd placed teams. This season 32 teams qualify for the play-off based on a ranking system.
This competition does not receive the same amount of television or web streaming coverage as the EuroLeague Women tournament, but it is possible to follow the play-by-play live actions of the matches here.
