    All teams in the league compete against each other during the regular season.

    At the conclusion of the regular season, the winner of each conference will advance to the playoffs along with the two next best records (regardless of conference) that will fill the remaining two wildcard spots.

    The semi-final bracket will be 1st conference winner v lowest ranked wildcard team and the 2nd conference winner v highest ranked wildcard.

    The Semi-finals are played over two Gameweeks where the participant’s points total for both Gameweeks are added together. The winner of each semi-final will be the participant who scores the most points.

    The Final will see the winner of semi-final 1 vs. winner of semi-final 2.

    The League winner will be the participant who scores the most points.

    The final is played over one Gameweek only.


    In the event of a tie, the participant with the best Win/Loss Record will win. Should this fail to break the tie the player with the most Total points scored wins. Should this fail to break the tie the player with the least Total points against wins.
