Format of the League
BlitzLiga’s main competition is a league. Depending on the number of teams competing, the teams either compete in a single league or they are split into two equal-strength leagues.
Qualification for the Finals
After every team in each league has played against every other team in the league, the strongest teams qualify for the finals. In seasons when there is a single league, such as season 17, there is a single game on the final day and there are only two qualifiers: the teams that finish first and second in the league. In seasons when there are two equal-strength groups, such as season 16, there are four teams that qualify for the final day: the teams that finish first and second in each group
League standings are ranked by total points, then goal difference, then goals scored, and then result of the match between the teams concerned.
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.
Games are usually played on successive Sundays. We do not play on the weekends of public holidays. The match times may change from season to season. See this season for the current schedule.
Fixtures are provisional unless otherwise stated on the schedule. Once they have been confirmed, fixtures cannot be amended or re-arranged except when there is no alternative, such as when the owners of the venue require. Fixtures can be viewed via the website. If changes the fixtures are changed on the website, the announcement will be made via the captains concerned and usually on BlitzLiga’s Facebook page.

Teamsheets and results
If a captain has less than six players for his team, he should try not to use any player who has played for or will play for another team in either league. If they use any such player, the result will be recorded as 0-3 and the three points will be awarded to their opposition.
