Details about the Cup

The competition will be a knock out competition, meaning that any defeated team will be definitely eliminated from the Euroleague Basketball Tournament.

For each match, one of the two teams will be chosen to be the host and its Captain will be in charge of the creation of the match and the assignation of players to their respective team.

Each match must be created as following:

  • Mode: Friendly competition
  • Type of match: 3 vs 3
  • Length of quarter: 2 minutes (total length of match: 8 minutes)

Basketball Trophy 2009 matches must be played each evening between 8:00 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. (GMT+1 Paris, Berlin, Madrid…). The match planning will be published by EOS Jack.

In the event of a draw at the end of normal playing time, 2 minutes of extra time will be added to the clock. If after this extra time none of the teams has managed to take the upper hand, 2 more minutes will be added as the match goes into “sudden death”, meaning that the first team to score will be granted winner of the match.

Warning: Teams can only play matches if at least one of their players is present at the beginning of a match. Missing team-mates will be replaced with bots (handled by the game's AI).

If none of the team members comes at the time defined for the match, the team is considered to have withdrawn from the competition.

If none of the two teams comes, they will be both disqualified and eliminated from the competition.
