The new and 14th participant in the VTB United League this season will be Zelena Gura, four-time Polish champions and two-times participant in the Euroleague. 

The format of the tournament was also approved. The top eight teams of the United League will be decided by the results of the regular season, held from October 2018 to May 2019. The playoffs of the tournament will be held from May to June 2019, and the winner of the VTB United League will be determined by playoff matches, not the Final Four as in previous seasons.
