This year’s season of the Israeli Basketball Premier League doesn’t bring any major changes when it comes to the overall format and competition rules. The 12 teams will, as usually, play against each other two times, while at the end of the regular season we are going to see them divided into two groups, known as the top group and the bottom group. This phase consists of additional matches where each of the teams play each of the other teams in their group only once.
When all the matches finish, all teams from the top group and the two best teams from the bottom group are going to advance to the next stage, known as the quarterfinals. The winners of these matches will then enter the Final Four, until we are left with the two best basketball teams in Israel. This year’s season will also operate on the promotion and relegation system, meaning the two lowest ranked teams will face the danger of being sent to the lower-tier Second Division.
