The Belgian Basketball Cup (Dutch: Beker van België), for sponsorship reasons the bpost cup, is the top tier national basketball cup competition in Belgium. The tournament is played in a knock-out format, in which teams are drawn against each other. Oostende is the most successful club in the competition's history, as it won 19 titles.

History[edit]

Former logo of the Belgian Cup

In 2013, the cup got a new name in The Base Cup, referring to the new main sponsor Base. The mobile telephony provider signed a sponsorship contract for 3 years. This led to, in the 2013–14 season, the first time a Final Four was held instead of semifinals with two legs since 2003.[1]

Format[edit]

Teams from the Basketball League Belgium Division I, the Top Division 1 and Top Division 2 (the first three divisions in Belgian basketball) compete in the competition. In the first round teams from the Top Division I and 2 play in 12 groups. From the second round, teams from the BLB Division I enter the competition. In the second round, the quarter- and semi-finals a double legged format is used. When a Division I team faces off against a team from a lower league, no second leg is played. The Final is decide by a single game.[2]

Sponsorship names[edit]

Due to sponsorship reasons, the cup competition has known several names:

  • Base Cup (2013–2016)
  • bpost cup (2016–present)
