The European North Basketball league is pleased to announce composition of groups for the 2023/2024 regular season.
Three principles were taken into account, before splitting 16 teams into two groups.
Seven teams participated in the ENBL 2022/2023 season, finishing as follows:
#3 Polski Cukier Start Lublin
#6 Zastal Zielona Gora
#8 KB Sigal Prishtina
#12 Tartu Ülikool Maks&Moorits
#14 Basket Brno
#15 Valmiera Glass ViA

As there are two teams from the United Kingdom, Poland, Lithuania and Estonia, they are split in two different groups – in order to face different and unknown opponents.
ENBL has reorganized the competition format – starting from the fall of 2023, there will be SINGLE games only.
In order to save the costs for the clubs, ENBL arranged more balanced groups.
Hapoel Beer Sheva-Dimona
KB Sigal Prishtina
Landstede Hammers Zwolle
Polski Cukier Start Lublin
Tartu Ülikool Maks&Moorits
Royal Liège Basket
Seriös Group Newcastle Eagles
Valmiera Glass ViA
Zastal Zielona Gora
The regular season is set to start on Tuesday, September 19. Four best teams from each group will qualify for the playoffs (A1-B4, A2-B3, A3-B2, A4-B1).
The 2024 playoffs – home and away, best-of-two series – will take place from February 1 until March 20.
The 2024 Final Four will take place on April 9-10.
The schedule will be announced next week.
