Current: 2020 Campeonato Gaúcho

The Campeonato Gaúcho Série A1 (Gaúcho Championship A1 Series or Série A1), commonly known as Campeonato Gaúcho, has been since its founding in 1919 the top flight tier of the division of professional football clubs in the Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Sul, that contest in the Campeonato Gaúcho, typically from January to April, for the state championship title. The rivalry of two of the better-known Brazilian teams (Grêmio and Internacional) have a significant impact in the history of the tournament.

The 2020 season had 12 clubs contesting and the champions are Grêmio, who added to its cache of 38 previous Campeonato Gaúchoo championships.

Format[edit]

Competition[edit]

The 16 clubs in the Campeonato Gaúcho are divided into two groups for the season from January to April. Each club contests twice to achieve the calculations that earns the team the right to advance in the competition for the title. Each team contests a team from the other group, then against a team in its own group. A win earns the team three points and a draw earns the team one point. A loss earns zero points. Each team is ranked by a series of calculations based on: total points earned, the number of wins, goal difference and goals scored. The top four ranking teams from each group qualify for the [[play-off|s quarter-finals that contest in a particular format. In a single game, the top ranked teams of each group contests the bottom ranked teams of the other group, with the home advantage given to the better ranked team. The semi-finals follow in a single game contest. The finals are played by two games. The three lowest ranked teams are relegated to the Série A2.

Qualification for competitions[edit]

The best placed of league also qualify for the Campeonato Brasileiro Série D, excluding the teams having already qualified for the Série A, Série B or Série C. The best three teams in the Campeonato Gaúcho (champions, runner-up and the third most points in overall table), not qualified to Copa Libertadores de América, will qualify for Copa do Brasil of the following season.
