League Schedule Summary

  • Weeks 1-5 : Qualifying - the top 24 teams after week 5 will progress to the group stage.

Each group consists of a round-robin over 11 weeks, with each team playing all of the other teams in their group in a series of head-to-head matchups. 3 points for a win, 1 for a draw, 0 for a loss.
