and their club-members earlier this month.

The format will remain the same as the previous season: 2 groups of 5 teams in each. Then - Top 8 (2 groups of 4 teams) and the main change is that the League has decided to go back to the Final Four tournament which will be held in April 2018.
The BIBL has taken into consideration the FIBA World Cup qualifiers. In November 2017 there will be only 1 round and in February 2018 no rounds will be played so that the calendar will not disturb the preparations and games of the respective national teams.
