The FIBA Intercontinental Cup, commonly referred to as the FIBA World Cup for Champion Clubs, or the FIBA Club World Cup, is a professional basketball competition that is endorsed by FIBA World and the NBA. Historically, its purpose has been to gather the premier basketball clubs from each of the world's geographical zones, and to officially decide the best basketball club of the world, which is officially crowned as the world club champion. The World Cup for Clubs has been contended mainly by the champions of the continents and/or world geographical regions that are of the highest basketball levels.

The league champions of the NBA, which is considered the most prestigious club competition from the North American zone, currently decline participation. The NBA currently opts instead to send the champions from the NBA G League, which is its secondary club competition. While the league champions of the EuroLeague, which is considered Europe's most prestigious club competition, are not currently permitted to participate at the competition, due to the league's dispute with FIBA. In place of the EuroLeague champions, FIBA Europe instead sends the champions of their main club competition, the FIBA Champions League.

FIBA has in the past announced plans to expand the tournament to possibly include the champion teams from the FIBA AfroLeague, the FIBA Asia Champions Cup, the Australian NBL, and possibly the NBA, at some point in the future.[1][2]

Format

From the 2013 edition of the tournament, through the 2015 edition of the tournament, the competition was played in either an aggregate score two-legged series, or in a single-game final format between two teams, that determined the official world club champion. Those two teams were the champions of Europe's most prestigious competition, the EuroLeague, and the champions of Latin America's premiere competition, the FIBA Americas League.

For the 2016 edition and 2017 edition, the champions of the FIBA Americas League, played against the champions of FIBA Europe's main club competition, FIBA Europe Cup (2016) and FIBA Europe's current top competition, the FIBA Champions League (2017), as EuroLeague clubs were no longer allowed to participate, by FIBA, due to FIBA's dispute with Euroleague Basketball.[3][4]

For the 2019 edition of the tournament, FIBA expanded the competition to include the NBA G League's champions, and also a tournament host club. The format was also thus changed to a four team final four format.[5]

History

The FIBA Intercontinental Cup competition was originally organized between the years 1966 and 1987. The tournament had its origins with a friendly test game in São Paulo, Brazil, in 1965. The test game was contested by the winners of the South American Championship of Champions Clubs, the Brazilian club S.C. Corinthians Paulista, and the FIBA European Champions Cup (EuroLeague) champions, the Spanish club Real Madrid. S.C. Corinthians Paulista won the test game, by a score of 118 to 109. After the success of the test tournament, the first official tournament took place in the year 1966.[6]

In 1973, the competition adopted the name FIBA Intercontinental Cup William Jones, to honour the secretary general of FIBA, William Jones. FIBA tried to rebirth the competition in 1996, by reorganizing the Intercontinental Cup into a best-of-three playoff tournament between the winners of the EuroLeague and the winners of the FIBA South American League (the champions of all of South America). After that tournament however, the competition was succeeded by the McDonald's Championship, which preexisted and included NBA clubs.[citation needed] The McDonald's Championship however, was not an official world club tournament like the FIBA Intercontinental Cup.

In August 2013, an agreement reached between Euroleague Basketball Company, FIBA Americas, and FIBA World, allowed for the World Cup for Champion Clubs to be relaunched, and to be played between the EuroLeague champion and the FIBA Americas League champion.[7][8]

In 2016, the tournament changed format, with the EuroLeague champions no longer being allowed to compete at the tournament by FIBA, due to the EuroLeague's dispute with FIBA. In place of the EuroLeague champions, FIBA Europe began to send the champions of their top club competition, originally the FIBA Europe Cup, and later the FIBA Champions League, instead.[9][10] For the 2019 tournament, FIBA increased the competition's number of teams to four, by adding the NBA G League's champions, and also a tournament host club. The tournament was also reconfigured into a final four format.[11]

FIBA has also considered plans to expand the tournament at some point in the future, with plans to add the champion teams from the FIBA AfroLeague, the FIBA Asia Champions Cup, the Australian NBL, and possibly the NBA.[12][13]

The FIBA Intercontinental Cup unofficially began with a friendly test game in São Paulo, Brazil, in 1965. The game was played by the defending champions of the South American Club Championship, Corinthians, and the defending champions of the FIBA European Champions Cup, Real Madrid. It was held at the Ginásio Poliesportivo Parque São Jorge. Corinthians won the game 118 to 109. Due to the test tournament's great success (attendance for the game was over 10,000), the FIBA Intercontinental Cup was made an official annual tournament by FIBA. The first official FIBA Intercontinental Cup tournament was then held the following year.[14]
