Alpe Adria Cup

Short History

     The Alpe Adria Cup (AAC) is the regional men's professional basketball competition that features clubs from Central Europe. It was formed in the competition season 2015/16 in the Alpe-Adria region to enable ambitious basketball teams to upgrade their domestic competition with international experience. Eight teams from Austria, Croatia, Slovakia and Slovenia competed in the first year. After counting thirteen teams in its second season, the 2017/18 competition was played with sixteen teams from six countries, namely Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia and Slovenia. This number increased to seven in the 2018/19 season, when the one Polish team joined the competition. The final games of the 2019/20 season were postponed for a couple of months due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
