2011-2012 season

2011 EuroLeague Women final four teams ©  FIBA Europe  The EuroLeague women’s basketball competition brings together the top teams from various European basketball leagues.

The ELW competition format had been changed for the season (2011-2012) by replacing the final four with a final eight.

The original plan had been to have 24 teams split into three groups of eight, with the top four teams from each group qualifying for the knock-out stage alongside the best fifth place teams.

The host of the Final Eight qualifies directly for the final phase.

However with just 23 teams this season, one group had seven teams.

The competition is still played in three distinct phases:

1. the group stage (round robin) in which eight teams are eliminated,
2. the second round - best of three series - in which seven teams are eliminated,
3. the final eight.
