2013 Campeonato Paraibano

The Campeonato Paraibano is the football league of the state of Paraíba, Brazil.

Format[edit]

As in any other Brazilian soccer championship, the format can change and be adapted every year, mostly to avoid conflicts for the teams that will compete at a national level.

The 2013 season was played in two stages, the first being a round-robin tournament and the second being based on play-off matches.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ The Paraíba State league was inactive in 1922
  2. ^ Due to the Revolution of 1930, the tournament was paralyzed and no team was declared champion
  3. ^ In 1975, the tournament was set to be played in a triple round-robin stage format. However, at the end of the second round-robin stage, Auto Esporte judicially contested the referee of one of their matches. This caused a paralyzation of the championship, with the third round-robin stage not being realized and the FPF (Federação Paraibana de Futebol) declaring Botafogo (winner of first round-robin stage) and Treze (winner of the second round-robin stage) state champions of 1975.[2]
  4. ^ In 1985, accusations of irregular transfers and various interpretations of the tournament regulations caused Botafogo and Treze to judicially contest the title outside of sporting justice courts. The justice decided that the title should be shared by the two clubs, however FPF claimed to have no conditions of declaring any of the teams champions.[3]
