Nationalliga A teams 2019–20


Format


Starting with the 2010–11 season, a play-off system was adopted. After the regular season, where the teams play each other twice, the top 8 teams play a final round which decides the champion. The two last placed teams and the winners of both Nationalliga B play each other twice. The top 2 teams of that group will stay in the Nationalliga A with the bottom 2 playing in next season's Nationalliga B.[1] Tiebreakers in the playoffs are points and then better regular season standings.[2]

For the 2017–18 season the league is reduced from 10 to 8 teams to increase competitiveness.[3] The eight teams play each other four times. The leading team then is champion.[4]
