Format[edit]

On 11 June 2012 it was announced that the Indian Football Association would change the format of the Calcutta Premier Division for 2012–13.[1] For starters they decided to increase the number of teams from 17 to 19.[1] Second they decided to divide those teams into two groups, Group A with 10 teams and Group B with 9 teams.[1] Also the federation decided to split the big four clubs of Kolkata (East Bengal, Mohun Bagan, Prayag United, and Mohammedan) into the two groups.[1] The IFA also decided that each team plays each other twice before five teams from Group A and four teams from Group B move on to the Final Round while the remaining 10 teams fight in a relegation league and the bottom team relegated.[1] The points from the first round would not be carried to the Final Round.[1] The IFA also decided the disban the rule which forced clubs to field one u19 player due to the formation of the Calcutta Premier U19 League.[1]
