The 2018 Campeonato Carioca de Futebol is the 115th edition of the top division of football in the state of Rio de Janeiro. The competition is organized by FERJ. The top four teams in the final standings of the tournament not otherwise qualified will qualify to compete in the 2019 Copa do Brasil. Additionally, the top three teams not competing in any level of the national Campeonato Brasileiro qualify for the 2019 Brasileiro Série D.

The format remains unchanged from the 2017 edition. In the First Round, six teams play a round-robin tournament, with the top two teams qualifying for the main competition and the bottom four entering the Relegation Round. The main competition is divided into two tournaments, the Taça Guanabara and Taça Rio, each with two 6-team groups. The top two teams in each of the groups qualify for the championship of that tournament. The top four teams in the final standings qualify for the Final Round (the Taça Guanabara and Taça Rio champions automatically qualify). The Final Round is a knockout-style playoff with a two-legged final played at the Maracanã Stadium[1]. in Macaé was punished with the loss of 26 points by TJD-RJ by irregular escalation of left-side Luke Gabriel in six matches of the Taça Rio.[2]

Championship round[edit]

The Championship Round is separated into two competitions: the Taça Guanabara followed by the Taça Rio. In each competition, the twelve competing clubs are separated into two groups of six, Group A and Group B. The traditional "big four" teams of Rio de Janeiro (Flamengo, Botafogo, Fluminense, and Vasco da Gama) are separated with two teams placed in each group. Each round has its own four-team playoff featuring the top two teams of each group. The Taça Rio is then followed by a four-team Final playoff featuring the top four teams of the combined table across both competitions (the competition playoff champion(s) qualify for the Final playoff automatically).

Taça Guanabara[edit]

The Taça Guanabara group stage is competed from 16 January 2018 to 4 February 2018. It is single round-robin format with each team playing once against every other team of their group. The top two teams in points in each group qualify for the knockout stage of the competition. The champion of Taça Guanabara qualifies to the Final Stage.
