LEB Plata seasons

The 2010–11 LEB Plata season is the 11th season of the LEB Plata, second league of the Liga Española de Baloncesto and third division in Spain. It is also named Adecco Plata for sponsorship reasons.

Competition format[edit]

15 teams play the regular season. This is a round robin, where each team will play twice against every rival. The champion of the Regular Season is promoted to the 2011-12 LEB Oro season and the eight next teams enter the play-offs, where the winner is promoted too.

The last qualified teams is relegated to 2011-12 Liga EBA.

Eligibility of players[edit]

All teams must have in their roster:

  • A minimum of seven eligible players with the Spanish national team.
  • A maximum of two non-EU players.
  • A maximum of two EU players, which one can be a player from an ACP country.
  • If a team has not two non-EU players, it can sign a player of everywhere.

Teams can not sign any player after February 28.

Regular season[edit]

Each team of every division has to play with all the other teams of its division twice, once at home and the other at the opponent's stadium. This means that in Liga LEB the league ends after every team plays 28 games. The regular season started on October 1, 2010 and finished on April 15, 2011.

Like many other leagues in continental Europe, the Liga LEB takes a winter break once each team has played half its schedule. One feature of the league that may be unusual to North American observers is that the two halves of the season are played in the same order—that is, the order of each team's first-half fixtures is repeated in the second half of the season, with the only difference being the arenas used. This procedure is typical in Europe; it is also used by La Liga in football.

If two or more teams have got the same number of winning games, the criteria of tie-breaking are these:

  1. Head-to-head winning games.
  2. Head-to-head points difference.
  3. Total points difference.

At the final of the season:

  • The regular season winner promotes directly to LEB Oro.
  • Teams qualified between 2nd and 9th, joined the promotion playoffs to LEB Oro.
