It is an eight-team league that plays a 28-game schedule on weekends, with the season running from late March to early October. The top six teams qualify for the playoffs with the two first advancing directly to the semifinals. Teams ranked 3 to 6 play a best-of-five qualification for the semi-finals where they join the first two of the season. Semi-finals and finals are also played to the best-of-five. The league follows a promotion and relegation system where the last of the regular season gets to the Nationale 1 while the second-last play a barrage to the N1 finalist for a spot in the next Élite season.
