Overall tableEdit

Unlike last year the overall table considers the matches played during all stages and the first criterion for the position is stage. In order to reduce the number of participants from 16 to 12 (14 in 2016) three teams that will be relegated to play Série A2 in 2016 and only one team will be promoted to the first division. The best placed team not playing in Campeonato Brasileiro Série A (Grêmio and Internacional), Série B or Série C (Brasil (PE), Caxias and Juventude) and the 2014 Super Copa Gaúcha champions Lajeadense will be "promoted" to Série D. The best three teams will qualify for 2016 Copa do Brasil.
