The EuroLeague Women participation is determined by the national federation and not by FIBA Europe.
The role of FIBA Europe is to maintain a ranking system and determine how many places they give to a Federation per season in inter-continental club competitions.
France and Russia had four places last season but were aware that they might lose one spot for 2009-2010.
As it happened France and Russia were given three spots each for 2009-2010.
The Russian Federation approved the qualification of Spartak Moscow Region as defending champions and gave the two remaining spots to UMMC Ekaterinburg and CSKA Moscow based on domestic qualification rules.
The Russian club CSKA Moscow have declined their participation in Europe's top basketball competition for women basketball clubs due to financial problems.
According to the ranking of the clubs for EuroLeague Women, Wisla Can-Pack are the fist in line with the right to replace CSKA Moscow and have declared their willingness to do so immediately.
After this development the clubs in the EuroLeague Women Regular Season Group B are:
Gospic Croatia Osiguranje
Beretta Famila Schio
ESB Villeneuve d'Ascq Lille Metropole "
Wisla Can-Pack have been replaced by another Polish club, Energa Torun in the EuroCup Women.
