2018–19 Greek A2 Basket League

The Greek A2 Basket League (Greek: Ελληνική Α2 Μπάσκετ Λιγκ), is the 2nd-tier level professional basketball competition among pro clubs in Greece. It is organized by the Hellenic Basketball Federation (E.O.K.).

History

In the 1986–87 season, the current format for Greek professional basketball, consisting of the A1 National Category and the A2 National Category was formed.

Starting with the 2015–16 season, playoffs were added between the 2nd and 5th placed teams for promotion to the 1st tier Greek Basket League, and a one-game play-out was added to decide relegation to the 3rd tier Greek B Basket League.[1]

  • 1986–87 to 2011–12: Alpha2 National Category
