Fifteen days before the "play off" will be a period of transfer and exchange of players, where teams will have the opportunity to improve their competitive edge, reinforcing the changes they make.
They play a four round system ("round robin") and their final. The team with the most points will automatically qualify for the final. Those who remain in second and third place play a best-of-three series. The winner will play the number-one team during the finals. The champion is declared when a best-of-three series is played between these two teams.
