2015–16 Superleague Greece

The Superleague Greece (Greek: Ελληνική Σούπερ Λιγκ) is the highest professional football league in Greece. It was formed on 16 July 2006 and replaced Alpha Ethniki at the top of the Greek football league system. The league consists of 16 teams and runs from August to May, with teams playing 30 games each. As of May 2013, Superleague Greece is ranked 12th in the UEFA ranking of leagues, based on performances in European competitions over the last five years.

Since the foundation of the first official Panhellenic Championship in season 1927–28,[1] only six clubs have won the title, with the "big three" of Greater Athens (Olympiacos, Panathinaikos and AEK Athens) dominating and only PAOK, Aris and Larissa managing to break their dominance on a few occasions. The current champions are Olympiacos, who have won a total of 42 titles.

History[edit]

In the beginning (1906–1916), there was the Hellenic Association of Amateur Athletics (SEGAS) Panhellenic Championship, which was actually a local tournament among clubs from Athens and Piraeus. After the Balkan Wars and World War I Greece became larger and the first football clubs associations were founded, namely the Athens-Piraeus FCA (EPSAP) in 1919 - renamed Greece FCA (EPSE) in 1921 - and the Macedonia FCA in 1923. For the first time in 1923, the Panhellenic Champion was determined by a play-off game between the Athens-Piraeus and the Thessaloniki champions. However, this was not repeated the following year as the Greece FCA was split into Athens FCA and Piraeus FCA after a dispute.

Structure[edit]

At present, 16 clubs compete in the Superleague, playing each other in a home and away series. At the end of the season, the bottom three clubs are relegated to Football League.[2] In their place, the top three teams from Football League are promoted. The number of teams to be relegated may change, depending on a licensing procedure that takes place at the end of the regular season. The league was reduced from 18 teams to 16 following the 2014–15 season; this was accomplished by relegating four teams and promoting only two.

The Superleague is currently entitled to two entrants into the UEFA Champions League. The Superleague champion directly enters the group stage of the UEFA Champions League. The second through fifth place teams in the Superleague enter a play-off for the second Greek entry. The play-off winner enters the UEFA Champions League's third qualifying round, a two-legged tie from which the winner advances to the play offs of the UEFA Champions League. The winner of the Greek Cup automatically qualifies for the UEFA Europa League, as well as the runners-up of the Superleague play-off.

In the play-off for the UEFA Champions League, the teams play each other in a home and away round robin. However, they do not all start with 0 points. Instead, a weighting system applies to the teams' standing at the start of the play-off mini-league. The team finishing fifth in the Superleague will start the play off with 0 points. The fifth place team’s end of season tally of points is used to calculate the sum of the points that other teams will have. The point difference of each of the 2nd, 3rd and 4th team from the fifth place team is then divided by five (if the result is a decimal number it is then rounded to a full number, with .5 or more being rounded up) and the resulting number respectively for each team is the number of points with which they will start the mini-league.[3]

  1.  ^ The final positions for teams ranked 2–5 in regular season are being determined by the playoffs.[4]
  2.  ^ Platanias' home 1,000-seater Maleme Stadium does not meet Superleague regulations. Pankritio Stadium may be used as backup if construction on Perivolia Stadium is delayed.[5]

  • APOEL avoided relegation in the 1973–1974 season, but were forced to play in the Cypriot A Division the following season due to the Turkish Invasion of Cyprus. Hence they are the only team to have played a single season in the Greek league and not been relegated.
