Teams receive three points for a win and one point for a draw.
The bottom two teams in each league will be automatically relegated to the lower division (if one exists).
The third from bottom team will have a one match play off against the team that finishes third from top of the lower league.
If two or more teams finish level on points the team with the better goal difference will finish higher.
If two or more teams have the same points and the same goal difference, the team which has scored the higher number of goals will finish higher.
If two or more teams finish level on points, goal difference and goals scored, and the championship, a relegation place, promotion place, or play off place is at stake, they will then play another game to decide who finishes higher.
