BBL Champions Cup

The German Basketball Cup, known as the BBL-Pokal for sponsorship reasons, is the top annual national basketball cup competition in Germany. Since 2009, the title has been awarded to the winner of a final four competition between clubs of the BBL. The final stages are also known as the Beko BBL TOP FOUR.

History and format

The competition was founded in 1966, by the German Basketball Federation. The first final of the German Basketball Cup took place on June 11, 1967, in Oberhausen. Since 1993, the cup championship is decided in a final four format, which is held over one weekend. The host team of the cup's final four, is automatically set as one of the participants. The three remaining teams are determined by three quarterfinal matches, played between the winners of the earlier round matches.
