How does the Adidas Next Generation Tournament work?
The Euroleague Basketball Next Generation Tournament, currently known as the Adidas Next Generation Tournament for sponsorship reasons, is an international basketball tournament that brings together the best young players under the age of 18 from top European clubs. Organized by Euroleague Basketball, the Adidas Next Generation Tournament is designed to provide insane exposure for the stars of tomorrow.
To determine which teams qualify for the Final Four, which is held during the Final Four of the Senior Men's Euroleague, four qualifying tournaments are held. Each of these tournaments consists of eight teams: seven from clubs or academies and a specially formed Next Generation Team with promising players who are not included in the other teams.
The winner of each qualifying tournament earns an automatic spot in the finals. In addition to the four spots won by the winners of the ANGT qualifiers, one spot in the finals will be awarded to a Next Generation Team, which this time will be made up of the best players from all the Next Generation Teams. Three other teams will receive an invitation to the Final Four.
