Six EuroMillions League teams will be involved in the major FIBA European clubs' competitions this season. Proximus Spirou Charleroi and Telenet Oostende will be involved in the inaugural edition of the Basketball Champions League. Belfius Union Mons-Hainaut, Antwerp Giants, Basic-Fit Brussels Basketball and Limburg United will compete in the FIBA Europe Cup. All of them will be in action on the European scene from next week on.

In the Basketball Champions League, the 2016 Belgian champions of Telenet Oostende will start the competition next Wednesday Oct. 19th, 2016. They will travel to Montenegro where they will face KK Mornar with excellent US shooting guard Antabia Waller. Beside KK Mornar, Telenet Oostende Coach Dario Gjergja will also play Sidigas Avellino from Italy, Juventus Utena from Lithuania, Iberstar Tenerife from Spain, Cibona Zagreb from Croatia, SIG Strasbourg from Francce and the young squad of Mega Leks from Serbia in Group D. The other Belgian team involved in the major FIBA European clubs' competition is Proximus Spirou Charleroi, currently struggling in the domsetic EuroMillions League. The Spirou players and staff hope that a success in Group E of the Basketball Champions League could really launch their 2016-17 season. For their first game in this European competition, they will host Besiktas Istanbul with young talented Turkish point guard Kenan Sipahi at 20:30 on Oct. 18th, 2016. No doubt that many members of the strong Turkish community of the Charleroi area will go to the Spiroudome to attend this much awaited game next Tuesday evening. The Spirou players and their Head Coach Fulvio Bastianini will face AEK Athens from Greece at the Spiroudome one week later and also Dinamo Sassari from Italy, MHP Riesen Ludwigsburg from Germany, Partizan Beograd from Serbia, Szolnoki Olaj from Hungary and Stelmet Zielona Gora from Poland in a very challenging Group E.

In the FIBA Europe Cup, all four Belgian participants have good chances to qualify for the next round. For their very first experience on the European scene, Basic-Fit Brussels of Coach Serge Crevecoeur will compete in Group A with Elan Chalon from France, Alba Fehervar from Hungary and SL Benfica from Portugal. Belfius Union Mons-Hainaut of Yves Defraignes will face the Soedertlje Kings from Sweden and Telekom Bonn from Germany in Group C action. The current EuroMillions League leaders, Antwerp Giants of Coach Roel Moors, will play in Group D with FC Porto from Portugal, Sopron from Hungary and JSF Nanterre 92 from France. Limburg United of US Head Coach Brian Lynch will start the FIBA Europe Cup competition by travelling Koermend in Hungary where they will face the local team at 18:00 next Tuesday. In Group B, they will also have to get rid of Donar Groningen from the Netherlands as well as BCM Gravelines Dunkerque from France to reach the next stage in the FIBA Europe Cup competition.
