2018–19 NBB Cup

The NBB Cup (Dutch: NBB-Beker) is an annual cup competition for Dutch basketball teams organized by the Nationale Basketbal Bond (NBB). Every team in the Netherlands can participate by signing up for the preliminary rounds. Professional basketball teams from the Dutch Basketball League (DBL) enter the tournament in the fourth round. From 1977 until 1990 professional teams were not allowed to participate in the competition.

The tournament is organized in a knock-out format, with quarter- and semi-finals being two-legged series while the final is played in a single game. Den Bosch is the club with the most cup titles, with a total of 7.

Format[edit]

In the first, second and third round teams from the Dutch second, third and fourth division participate. From the fourth round, teams from the Dutch Basketball League (DBL) enter the competition.[1] Quarter- and semi-finals are played in a two-legged format. When a team form a tier lower than the DBL played a DBL team, one win is sufficient for the latter to advance to the next round.
