The EuroCup Women became a FIBA Europe competition in 2003 although the competition had been created in 1974.
The format of this event has been modified for the 2011-2012 season due to declining numbers of teams taking part. FIBA Europe came up with two formats:
1. If more than 32 clubs register, then an elimination round will be played to reduce the number of clubs to 32. This will lead to 8 groups of 4 clubs.
2. If less than 32 teams clubs register, then the elimination round will be played to reduce the number of clubs to 24. This will lead to a qualification round of 6 groups of 4 clubs.
When the draw was made on 9th July 2011 only 31 teams entered and FIBA Europe decided on not having an elimination round as stipulated in option 1.
Instead the teams were divided in eight regular season groups (seven groups of four teams each and one group with three teams) for the first phase of the competition.
The top two teams from each group will qualify for the eighth-final (also known as the round of 16). The draw (brackets) for the knock-out phase is determined by the teams' ranking after the group phase.
2. The play-off series and final are two legged matches played home and away with the results based on aggregate score.
This competition does not receive the same amount of television or web streaming coverage as the EuroLeague Women but it is possible to follow the play-by-play live actions of the matches with live streams from the clubs on match day.
