The tournament is held in several stages. The first stage is the regular championship, in which teams play two games against each other (home / away). The second stage is the group round, in which the teams play two more games, but within their group.
Teams ranked 1st to 6th place qualify for Group A, while teams ranked 7th to 12th place qualify for Group B. The group round is the second round of the regular season. Points earned are not forfeited, but continue to be credited for games played. The top eight teams advance to the playoff round.
In the first two rounds, teams are ranked based on points earned. Two points are awarded for winning a particular game, and one point is awarded to the losing team. If a basketball club does not come to the game or leaves the game before its completion, no points are awarded.
