After it became clear that BC Kavala will play in EUROHOLD BIBL this season, the Management of the League are thinking over 2 options for the competition system. On Monday September 10th, BIBL Sports Director Mr. Shay Shtriks will have meeting in Skopje with the president of F.Y.R. of Macedonian Basketball Federation Mr. Daniel Dimevski about the participation of one or two respectable teams from F.Y.R. of Macedonia. The Management of the League is still waiting for official answer from Romanian Basketball Federation if a local team will play in EUROHOLD BIBL this year or not.

Until today, 8 teams from 5 countries confirmed their participation in season 2012-2013 :

Bulgaria :
BC Levski Sofia
BC Rilski Sportist

Croatia :
KK Brod-Svjetlost

Greece :
BC Kavala

Israel :
BC Galil Gilboa

Montenegro :
KK Mornar Bar

KK Teodo Tivat

Serbia :
OKK Beograd

Here there are the two options of the competition system for the upcoming season :

Option 1 :
If the teams remain 8, there are not going to be groups and the format will be: one league of 8 teams + Final 4.
The minimum number of games per team in this format is 14.

Option 2 :
If BIBL increases the teams to 10, then the format will be :
1st stage - Two groups of 5 teams (teams from the same country will be in different groups)
2nd stage - First 3 teams of each group will make a league of 6 teams, keeping the results from the first stage. After that the first 4 teams qualify for the Final 4.
The teams placed 4th and 5th in the group stage will form a group of 4 teams, keeping the results from the first stage.
The minimum number of games per team in this format is 12.

Until 14th of September EUROHOLD Balkan League will announce officially the number and the names of the participating teams, along with the approved format of the competition.
