08 July 2008

Berlin, Germany played host to the draw for the newly named EuroChallenge on Tuesday as the names of the teams participating in Qualifying Round 1 were drawn and the potential match-ups for Qualifying Round 2 were also set.

The teams will play home and away games to determine who will advance to Qualifying Round 2 with the team drawn first hosting the opening game. Eight teams will eventually advance out of the two qualifying rounds to take part in the EuroChallenge Regular Season.

The remainder of the 32 teams competing in EuroChallenge Regular Season will come from a group of eight teams who directly advanced and the 16 losing teams from the EuroCup (formely the ULEB Cup) Qualifying Round.

EuroChallenge will kick off on 14 October and seven days later on 21 October the return legs will be played to decide who will advance to Qualifying Round 2.
