The draw for the groups was held on September 14, 2006 in Athens. The competition began on October 24, 2006 at the Olympic Pavilion in Badalona, Spain with Panathinaikos winning 82-79 against Joventut Badalona. The final of the competition was held on May 6, 2007 in the Olympic Indoor Hall in Athens, Greece, the home court of Panathinaikos, with Panathinaikos defeating defending champions CSKA Moscow 93-91.

Regular Season

The first phase is a regular season, in which the competing teams are drawn into three groups, each containing eight teams. Each team plays every other team in its group at home and away, resulting in 14 games for each team in the first stage. The top 5 teams in each group and the best sixth-placed team advance to the next round. The complete list of tiebreakers is provided in the lead-in to the Regular Season results.

If one or more clubs are level on won-lost record, tiebreakers are applied in the following order:

  1. Head-to-head record in matches between the tied clubs
  2. Overall point difference in games between the tied clubs
  3. Overall point difference in all group matches (first tiebreaker if tied clubs are not in the same group)
  4. Points scored in all group matches
  5. Sum of quotients of points scored and points allowed in each group match
Key to colors
     Top five places in each group, plus highest-ranked sixth-place team, advance to Top 16

Top 16

The surviving teams are divided into four groups of four teams each, and again a round robin system is adopted resulting in 6 games each, with the two top teams advancing to the quarterfinals. Tiebreakers are identical to those used in the Regular Season.

The draw was held February 5 at 13:00 CET (1200 UTC) in Barcelona, in accordance with Euroleague rules.[1]

The teams were placed into four pools, as follows:

Level 1: The three group winners, plus the top-ranked second-place team

Level 2: The remaining second-place teams, plus the top two third-place teams

Level 3: The remaining third-place team, plus the three fourth-place teams

Level 4: The fifth-place teams, plus the top ranked sixth-place team

Each Top 16 group included one team from each pool. The draw was conducted under the following restrictions:

  1. No more than two teams from the same Regular Season group can be placed in the same Top 16 group.
  2. No more than two teams from the same country can be placed in the same Top 16 group.
  3. If there is a conflict between these two restrictions, (1) will receive priority.

Another draw was held to determine the order of fixtures. In cases of two teams from the same city in the Top 16 (CSKA Moscow and Dynamo Moscow, Panathinaikos and Olympiacos, FC Barcelona and Joventut Badalona) they were scheduled so that every week only one team would be at home.
