SystemEdit

The championship would have three stages:[2][1]

  • First phase: The thirteen teams that didn't participate in the Série A or the Série B played against each other in a single round-robin system. After 13 rounds, the four best teams qualified to the Second phase.
  • Second phase: The four remaining teams joined the teams that participated in the Série A or Série B (Internacional, Grêmio, Caxias and Juventude), and played against each other twice, with the winners of each half qualifying to the Finals. The four best teams qualified to the following year's Copa Sul-Minas.
  • Finals: The stage winners of the Second phase played in two matches to define the Champions.
