Season Format

The ISR1 season consists of 2 stages. In the first stage, each ISR1 team plays the other 13 ISR1 teams in Home-Away matches for a total of 26 league matches. The second stage consists of the Championship Round and the Relegation Round. In the Championship Round, the top six teams play each other twice (10 more matches) to determine final rankings for 2023-2024 UEFA Champions League and 2023-2024 UEFA Europa Conference League placements. In the Relegation Round, the bottom eight teams play each other a 3rd time (7 more matches) to determine the relegation placements. Total points are for all 33 matches. Table ranking ties are broken by (1) goal difference, (2) matches won, (3) goals scored, (4) head-to-head points, (5) head-to-head goal difference, (6) head-to-head goals scored, then (7) a playoff.
