Since 2005, a Division B tournament, the second level of the European Under-20 Basketball Championship, is also organized. Since 2013, the top three placed teams at each year's Division B tournament are promoted to the next year's Division A Championship. This way, the three bottom teams of the Division A Championship are relegated to the next year's Division B Championship.
