2012–13 ABA League controversie
At the beginning of the 2012–13 ABA League Season, the ABA League Board announced that starting this season the only way to qualify for the European Club Competitions under ULEB, will be through Adriatic League and not the national championships of each ABA country member. ABA League Board also informed clubs and public that the winner of the regular season will directly qualify for the Euroleague Group Phase in season 2013/14 and that the second ABA team in Euroleague will be the Final Four winner. If the same team wins regular season and the Final Four, then second placed team from regular season will go to Euroleague. Third placed team from regular season would enter the Qualification for the 2013/14 Euroleague. During February 2013, when it became clear that Igokea will win the regular season, Euroleague Basketball clarified the situation of the Adriatic League spots saying the three first teams in the Final Four will qualify. Due to the different interpretation of both associations, Euroleague and Liga ABA negotiated a solution to be applied only for the 2012–13 season. Finally, both organizations agreed that if the team is in the first positions after the Regular Season meets all of the B-licence minimum requirements, will qualify to Euroleague. In this case KK Igokea doesn't meet required criteria, so Euroleague Basketball applied the 2012-13 Euroleague Bylaws by which the 2013 ABA Final Four champion and the runner-up will take the first two Adriatic positions in this order, whilst the next highest regular season team will take the final Adriatic position.
2013–14 European Club Competitions
On June 25, 2013, Executive Board of Igokea Basketball Club announced that the club won't use its right to compete in the 2013-14 Euroleague Qualifying Tournament citing that even if the club would win the tournament it would not be allowed to play games in its home arena since it doesn't meet the standards for obtaining Euroleague "B" license (mainly because of the capacity). Instead, BC Igokea will be playing in 2013-14 Eurocup competition.
