League Promotion Changes
Promotion will be based on Playoffs between the Top 4 teams in every League between Div II to VII. Which mean, Teams at the top of their league tables will not be automatically promoted, they still have to win the playoffs.
Qualifier 1 – First placed teams in the League vs Second
Eliminator – Third vs Fourth
Qualifier 2 – Loser of Qualifier 1 vs Winner of Eliminator
Final – Winner of Qualifier 1 vs Winner of Qualifier 2
The Winner of the Final is promoted to the next division.
The Pitch for all matches will be the Home pitch of the higher ranked Team.
This update will make leagues more competitive for teams regardless of what position they are mid-way through the season. The format is used in Hitwicket Tournaments as well as by IPL itself. If you’re not in direct contention for the league title, you no longer have to give up on promotion - instead fight to get into the top 4 for a chance at being promoted.
If you’re on top, you go into the playoffs with more room for mistakes, starting off with a qualifier instead of an eliminator, and every match is played on your home pitch.
