Baltic Basketball League (BBL) is the Baltic states basketball league founded in 2004.

The league mainly focuses on teams from the Baltic states but teams from Sweden, Russia, Kazakhstan and most recently from Finland have participated in the Baltic League.

For the 2014–15 season, the format of the BBL includes a regular season composed by two groups of six teams and one group of seven teams. Later, the format is similar as Eurocup with a Top 16 and a knockout stage with double legged series. The three teams participating in FIBA EuroChallenge and Eurocup competitions – Šiauliai, Tartu Ülikool/Rock and Ventspils – will begin their journey at the start of the playoffs, seeded respectively first, second and third based on last season’s results.

Baltic Basketball League also features a Baltic Basketball League Cup competition before the beginning of the regular season since 2008.
