Competition formatEdit

CompetitionEdit

There are 12 clubs in the Premier League. During the course of a season (from March to October) each club plays the others twice (a double round-robin system), once at their home stadium and once at that of their opponents', for 22 games. Teams receive three points for a win and one point for a draw. No points are awarded for a loss. Teams are ranked by total points, then goal difference, and then goals scored. If still equal, teams are deemed to occupy the same position. If there is a tie for the championship, for relegation, or for qualification to other competitions, a play-off match at a neutral venue decides rank.

Promotion and relegationEdit

A system of promotion and relegation exists between the Jordan Premier League and the Jordan League Division 1. The two lowest placed teams in Premier League are relegated to the League Division 1, and the top two teams from the League Division 1 are promoted to the Premier League.

Qualification for Asian competitionsEdit

At present, the winners of Jordan Premier League qualify for the AFC Champions League group stage, and the league runners-up qualify for the AFC Cup group stage alongside the winners of Jordan FA Cup.[2] Jordan is one of the most successful countries in the AFC Cup with three titles second after Kuwait, 2 for Al-Faisaly (2005 and 2006) and 1 for Shabab Al-Ordon (2007), more than any other country who has their clubs eligible to play in the AFC Cup.[3]
