ChampionshipEdit

Much like in the previous year, a preliminary phase was disputed before the championship proper, in which all teams played against each other twice and the six best teams qualified into the main championship. That phase was to be disputed in the second semester of 1970, by the teams that had been eliminated in that phase in the previous year, the four worst-placed teams in the main championship, and Noroeste, that had been promoted from the Second level.[3]

In the championship proper, each team played against the others twice, and the team with the most points won the title.[1][2]
