Promotion / Relegation
P/R will be evaluated on a two-year cycle: A team must be in the top position two years in a row to be considered for promotion from D3 to D2 and from D2 to D1. D2 clubs must also win at least one National Title before being promoted to D1.
D1 can grow up to 6 teams before being relegated. D2 can grow up to 9 teams before being relegated. A team may or may not be relegated based on performance after two years.
If there is ever a tie-breaker of a club wanting to move up and another club not wanting to move down, a challenge match should be arranged. Once D1 and D2 grow to 6 and 9 teams, promotion/relegation may be updated to happen in an automatic fashion.
