Championship format[edit]

  • First-phase: the 17 participants play all against all twice, but divided into two groups (one 8 and one 9) for classification, in the Group A, each team plays two more matches against any other. The first 2 of each group are classified for the finals.
  • Final-phase: the four clubs classified play all against all in a single round. The club with most points at this stage is the champion.
  • Tie-breaking criteria:

1 – Goal difference
2 – Raffle

  • With one victory, a team still gained 2 points, instead of 3.
