Sixteen teams currently comprise the league.
The league is conducted in two phases. In the first phase, 10 teams compete in a home-and-away round-robin series (18 games total) with the country's representative in the SEHA League, currently Zagreb and Nexe, being exempt from this stage. All teams advance from the regular season to one of two postseason stages, depending on their league position. The top four teams from the regular season are joined by the SEHA League representatives for the Championship Round (10 games total), while the bottom six teams play in the Relegation Round. At the end of the season, the bottom two finishers are automatically relegated to the second league.
