League format : Soccer / Football : Russia : Premier League 2012/2013
The Russian Premier League contains 16 teams. They will play a round-robin tournament whereby each team plays each one of the other teams twice, once at home and once away. Thus, a total of 240 matches will be played, with 30 matches played by each team. The teams that finish 15th and 16th will be relegated to the First Division, while the top two First Division teams will be promoted to the Premier League for the 2013/14 season.
The 14th Premier League team will play the 3rd First Division team in two playoff games with the winner securing a Premier League spot for 2013/14. This is a departure from the 2011/12 regulations whereby the promotion/relegation playoffs also involved the 13th Premier League team and the 4th First Division team.
