FormatEdit

From the 2010-11 season onwards the 10 teams play each other twice, once home and once away.[1]

For three years, 2007-08 to 2009-10, a play-off system was played. The teams played a round robin (9 games each) for the regular season. After that, there are two playoff groups, the championship group with places 1 to 5, and the relegation group with places 6 to 10. At the start of those the points accumulated during the regular season are halved (and rounded up if necessary). Each play-off round then plays a double round robin. The winner of the championship group was the champion. Last place of the relegation group got relegated into the 2nd division. The winners of the three divisions of the 2. Frauenliga played a promotion group. They play each other once, the team which is leading the standings after that got promoted to the ÖFB-Frauenliga.
