Promotion - Relegation - Tiebreakers

September 2016

League Games
  • Teams will play each team in their Division a minimum of two times (home and away)
  • One team will be promoted and one team will be relegated in each division for the following season
  • Promoted = the team with the highest points
  • Relegated = the team with the lowest points

Points are awarded as follows:

  • 3 points for WIN, 1 point for TIE.
  • No overtime no Playoffs for regular season league games
Determination of Division Champion
  • A division champion will be determined once all scheduled league games have been completed
  • The team with the highest number of points after all games have been completed or based on mathematical equation will be declared the Champion of their respective division
  • If the top two teams have the same amount of points at the end of the season, a Division Champion will be determined as follows:
  • Head to Head results
  • If “Head to Head” results are the same, then each team will be declared Co-Champions
  • If a team is necessary to move up a division (“promotion”), then the Co-Champions will play a play-off game. If “promotion” is not necessary (i.e. Premier Division teams or if one team does not want to be promoted), the play-off game is not necessary.
  • The play-off game to determine “promotion” for the following season, will be scheduled immediately 
  • Once the date has been determined for the play-off game, each team’s roster will be “frozen” two weeks before the game
  • If the play-off game ends in tie, existing FIFA rules for tie-breakers will be followed to determine a winner
  • Two 15 minutes halves
  • No Golden Goal
  • Kicks From The Mark
  • If there are more than 2 teams with the same amount of points at the end of the season, a playoff system will be devised to determine which team will be promoted to the next division.  Each team will be determined Co-Champions, the playoffs will only be necessary to determine which team moves up a division
