BlitzLiga operates two separate competitions: a league and a knock-out cup. Payment and entry to each competition is separate.
Format of the League
BlitzLiga’s main competition is a two-tier league with promotion and regulation at the end of each season.
The higher league (A) consists of the six strongest teams. The lower league (B) consists of the remaining teams and any new entries.
At the end of each season
the lowest-placed team in league A is relegated, with its place taken by the highest-placed team in league B.
the team that finishes second from bottom in league A has a play-off against the team that finishes second from top of league B. Only the winner of this game plays in league A the following season.
Fixtures within each league are arranged according to the previous season’s standings, with the highest-seeded teams facing each other in the final week.
Format of the Knock-Out Cup
The entry procedure is separate from the league and teams from both leagues compete against one another in this competition.
Squads and Registered Players
Before the first game of the season, each captain must complete the online form to submit the names of between eight and twelve registered players for his team. Teams must start each subsequent game with at least three players from that list. Between the third and fourth match days, teams may replace up to three of their registered players with new players.
