With a ten-year exclusive partnership with FIBA and FIBA Asia, EASL will launch in October 2022 and be Asia’s first international home-and-away club league format, featuring top teams from the best men’s leagues, integrated into the top domestic leagues’ seasons, fighting to be the region’s champion.

Format:

Eight top teams will take part in the first season and be divided into two groups of four teams. There will be 28 games played in total throughout the season.

Participating teams:

Eight of the best teams, featuring two representatives each from Greater China, Japan, Korea and the Philippines.

Group Stage:

Two EASL match ups nearly every Wednesday from October 2022 to February 2023. Each team will play home-and-away against the other teams in their group.

Final Four:

The winners and runners-up from the two groups will then compete in the EASL Final Four, scheduled for March 2023. The Final Four will rotate annually and feature Asia’s best cities in the ultimate destination event.

EASL Future Expansion:

After the first two seasons, EASL will expand to a 16-team format for the 2024-2025 edition and beyond, playing 52 games throughout the season.
