Winter League Structure

At the beginning of the 2018 season, the Northerns Council approved a new league structure consisting of two distinct halves.  The first half of the season consists of a single round-robin competition to determine in which league each team will compete.  In the second half of the season teams are allocated to leagues based on their standings at the end of the first half of the season and then compete to become league winners.  The standings at the end of the season are also used to determine the composition of the leagues for the first half of the next season.  The structure is illustrated below.

League Structure for first half of 2020

Based on the preliminary final league standings at the end of the 2019 season, and assuming that all teams re-enter in 2020, the league structure in the first half of the 2020 season will be as below.

NB: The final structure for 2020 will only be confirmed after the closing date for entries for the 2020 season.
