The 1970–71 FIBA European Champions Cup was the 14th installment of the European Champions Cup club competition, predecessor of the Euroleague. The Final was held at the Arena Deurne in Antwerp, Belgium on April 8, 1971. It was won by CSKA Moscow who defeated Ignis Varèse by a result of 67–53.

Competition System

  • 27 teams (domestic champions plus title holder) playing knock-out rounds on a home and away basis. The aggregate score of both games decides the winner.
  • The eight teams qualified for the Quarterfinals are divided into two groups of four. Every team plays against the other three in its group in consecutive home-and-away matches, so that every two of these games count as a single win or defeat (point difference being a decisive factor here). In case of a tie between two or more teams after this group stage, the following criteria is used: 1) one-to-one games between the teams; 2) basket average; 3) individual wins and defeats.
  • The group winners and the runners-up of the Quarterfinal Group Stage qualify for the Semifinals. The final is played at a predetermined venue.
