The ACB League – known for sponsorship reasons as Liga Endesa-23 – is the main professional basketball league in Spain. The Asociación de Clubes de Baloncesto (ACB) took over the reins of the League in the 1983-1984 season replacing the Federación Española de Baloncesto (FEB), which ceased to organise the National League.

Background and origin

The background of the current ACB League dates back to the Spanish Basketball League denomination that received the current competition that since 1957 faced Spanish clubs every year in a league competition with matches between all participants, double round. It was organized by the Spanish Basketball Federation until 1983 when the clubs, organized in the newly created Association of Basketball Clubs, decided to organize the ACB League.

The ACB League is considered the successor of the First Division of the Spanish Basketball League organized by the FEB, hence it computes a single record with the champions of the league competition.

The First Division of the Spanish League of the FEB disputed between 1957 and 1983 was a league system in the strict sense of the word. There was no play-off dispute, so all participants (whose number was increasing over the years) faced each other according to the schedule established by a draw at the beginning of the season. When all the teams had faced the rest, the second round began. The teams faced each other again, following the same order of the calendar, but altering the field in which they played. In this way, all the teams faced each other twice, and once on each field.

The victory was worth two points and the tie one point (in those days the rules of basketball contemplated the tie to points).

At the end of the second round the league concluded and the first classified according to the points system, was proclaimed champion and agreed to participate in the European Cup organized by the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) and precursor of the current Euroleague.

The teams classified in second, third and fourth place disputed the Korac Cup, except if any of them had won the Copa del Rey, in which case qualified to dispute the European Cup Winners’ Cup – second European competition in importance.

The last three classifieds descended to the Primera Division B of the League and left their place to the top three classifieds of this, which rose in category.


For a record of historical participants see ACB League History.

Seventy-five different teams have participated in this competition, but only three have remained in the category since its first edition under the name of National League. These are Real Madrid Basketball, Estudiantes Basketball Club and Club Joventut de Badalona.

The autonomous community that has contributed more participants in the history of the league is Catalonia with a total of twenty-one teams, followed by the Community of Madrid with eleven, the Basque Country with eight and Andalusia with seven, being traditionally the four Spanish regions most dedicated to sport. To these must be added the participation of a single foreign club, the Basket Club Andorra, from the adjacent sovereign country of Andorra.

As a consequence of the descent of the San Sebastian Gipuzkoa Basket Club and the frustrated promotions of Club Ourense Baloncesto, Quesos Cerrato Palencia and Club Melilla Baloncesto, the Endesa League is reduced to 17 teams for the 2016/2017 season, with one resting each week. This season, the first team to rest will be Morabanc Andorra.

Competition system

The ACB League is made up of 18 teams competing in a first phase or regular phase in a League in which each faces all the others twice (once as a home and once as a visitor).

At the end of the first round, the first eight classifieds dispute the Copa del Rey although it may be the case that the eighth classified does not dispute it. That is because one of the places is for an ACB team host city that organizes the tournament. It is played in a single match (seven matches: quarterfinals, semifinals and final) in the same venue. What makes that the spectacle is concentrated and the dispute of an event in an only weekend between the best teams, what gives spectacularity and emotion to this competition. The winning team takes the trophy of the same name. The Cup is an excellent opportunity to see the best of Spanish club basketball.

At the end of the regular phase, the top eight teams face each other in the play-offs, i.e. these eight teams are paired according to their regular phase ranking and they play the best of three matches (five in the final). The first classified have field advantage and the pairings are made favoring the pre-qualification.

At the end of the regular phase, the top eight teams face each other in the play-offs, i.e. these eight teams are paired according to their regular phase ranking and they play the best of three matches (five in the final). The first classified have a field advantage and the pairings are made favoring the previous classification, ie the first plays with the eighth, the second with the seventh, the third with the sixth, and the fourth with the fifth. The winner of the final of these playoffs is proclaimed champion of the ACB League. The teams classified in the last two places at the end of the regular phase are relegated to the category immediately below, called Addeco Oro. Since the creation of the same, only four clubs have played all editions of the competition: Barça Lassa, Real Madrid, Divina Seguros Joventut, and Movistar Estudiantes.

The ACB was one of the driving and founding associations of the ULEB in 1991, which a few years later promoted the creation of the Euroleague and the Eurocup, independent competitions of the FIBA.

The honorary president of the ACB is Eduardo Portela who, in turn, has presided over the ULEB since 1998.


For a better detail of each edition see ACB League History.

Of the twenty-seven editions of the National Basketball League, Real Madrid de Baloncesto won twenty-two times, being only surpassed on five occasions, four of which were runners-up. The other winners were the Barcelona Football Club basketball with three titles and Club Joventut Badalona with two championships.

Since the competition became organized by the Association of Basketball Clubs under the name of ACB League, a total of seven teams have won: Barcelona Football Club 15 times, Real Madrid Basketball 11 times, Saski Baskonia 3 times, Club Joventut de Badalona 2 times and Bàsquet Manresa, Club Baloncesto Málaga and Valencia Basket once.

The best winning streak was achieved by Real Madrid, who managed to become champion in ten consecutive seasons between 1967 and 1977, while under the current name F. C. Barcelona achieved four straight between 1986 and 1990.

Croatian player Velimir Perasović was the league’s top scorer in four consecutive seasons, followed by the three Spanish chances of Emiliano Rodriguez and Alfonso Martinez. Since the 1990-91 season, the prize for the best player in the final has been awarded, with the Spanish Juan Carlos Navarro being the most honoured, ahead of the two prizes awarded by Arvydas Sabonis and Felipe Reyes. A year later, the prize for the best player in the regular league began to be given to the American Darryl Middleton on three occasions, ahead of the two occasions achieved by Arvydas Sabonis, Tanoka Beard and Luis Scola.
