Korać Cup 1973

(From 9-01-1973 to 27-03-1973)

 

 

COMPETITION SYSTEM

·          12 teams (best qualified clubs in domestic leagues) enter a 1/4 Final stage, divided into four groups of three. Every team plays against the other two in its group in consecutive home-and-away matches, so that every two of these games count as a single win or defeat (point difference being a decisive factor here). In case of a tie between two or more teams after this group stage, the following criteria is used to decide the final standing: 1) one-to-one games between the teams; 2) basket average; 3) individual wins and defeats.

·          The group winners after the 1/4 Final stage qualify for a 1/2 Final knock-out round (X-pairings, home and away games).

·          The final is played on a home and away basis.
