| FIBA Saporta Cup|
1999–2000 FIBA Saporta Cup season was a tournament organized by FIBA Europe. It occurred between September 21, 1999, and April 11, 2000. The final was held at Lausanne, Switzerland.
48 teams (domestic Cup champions plus best qualified teams in the most important European leagues) enter a preliminary group stage, divided into eight groups of six teams each playing a round-robin. The final standing is based on individual wins and defeats. In case of a tie between two or more teams after this group stage, the following criteria is used to decide the final classification: 1) number of wins in one-to-one games between the teams; 2) basket average between the teams; 3) general basket average within the group.
The top four teams from each group qualify for a 1/16 Final Playoff (X-pairings, home and away games), with winners advancing further to 1/8 Finals, 1/4 Finals and 1/2 Final.
The Final is played at a predetermined venue.
