FIBA Europe has approved a proposal by the EuroLeague Women Clubs General Assembly to modify the start date of the EuroLeague Women Regular Season.
Consequently, the competition will tip off on 24 October, one week later than initially scheduled.
The later start means the last game day before the winter break will now be played on 19 December.
It was also decided to amend the format of the Final Eight, by introducing an extra rest day and semi-finals.
This means that the EuroLeague Women Final Eight will take place between 18 and 24 March 2013.
