League format : Soccer / Football : Switzerland : Super League 2016/2017
Super League is the highest football competition in Switzerland. The new format was introduced in the 2003/04 season in order to improve the financial outlook for Switzerland's top clubs. Under this format, former Swiss National A League was replaced by the Super League and the number of teams was reduced from twelve to ten. Currently, the 10 top-flight clubs play each other four times over the course of the season, twice at home and twice away. After completing a 38-game schedule, the team that has accumulated the most points wins the championship.
The top two teams in the Swiss Super League enter the qualifying rounds of the UEFA Champions League. Only the lowest-placed team will be automatically relegated. The top finisher in the Second Division is automatically promoted to the top tier of the Swiss Football League.
