League format : Soccer / Football : Austria : Bundesliga 2013/2014
The Austrian leagues were reorganized in 1991, with the founding of a newly independent Bundesliga. Presently, the Bundesliga (First Division) is the top level in Austrian football. Like the Swiss Super League, the Austrian season starts in July because of a long mid-winter break. The competition involves ten teams, who play each other four times on a home and away basis during the season.
The team with the highest total point at the end of a 38-game season is the Austrian Bundesliga champion. The first and second-placed club gains the qualifying rounds of the Champions League. The bottom placed team in the Bundesliga is directly relegated to the division below. Meanwhile, the champion of the Austrian First League (Second Division) is promoted to the top flight.
