Euroleague Basketball has announced that the 2009-10 Eurocup season will culminate with the Eurocup Finals in one of the continent's strongest basketball markets, Vitoria, Spain, on April 17 and 18. The newest Eurocup champion will be crowned at the 10,000-seat Fernando Buesa Arena in Vitoria, the homecourt of Euroleague club Caja Laboral. The two-day, four-team tournament will feature semifinals on Saturday, April 17 leading to the next day's title game, whose winner will not only lift the Eurocup trophy, but also qualify for the following season's Euroleague!

The Eurocup is enjoying its eighth season as the second-best league in Europe. Vitoria becomes the third host city for the crowning of the competition's champion since the competition went to a single-game final format, in 2003. The title game was held four times, between 2004 and 2007, in Charlerloi, Belgium. The last two years, the Eurocup Final Eight took place in Turin, Italy.

Vitoria has proven a hotbed for basketball fans for two decades or more during which Saski Baskonia's Tau Ceramica team - now Caja Laboral - became one of Europe's best-known in all of Europe, reaching four consecutive Final Fours. Vitoria is also the capital of the region where Bizkaia Bilbao Basket, currently the Eurocup's only undefeated team, is located. Besides the Fernando Buesa Arena, Vitoria and Saski Baskonia also boast the state-of-the-art Bakh Sports City, a lifestyle center that includes indoor-outdoor facilities for at least eight sports, classrooms, spa, fitness, restaurants and other services.

Tickets for the Eurocup Finals will go on sale later in February.
