The league is run by the Russian Basketball Federation (RBF).[1]

The league contains 14 clubs that compete in a home-and-away round-robin. At the end of the season, the top eight clubs advance to the play-offs. The first round is played on a best-of-three basis. The four winning clubs advance to two best-of-five playoffs. Until 2010 the winners of which are promoted to the Super League, with the two teams that finish at the bottom of the table are relegated to 3rd level league, but since 2010 the winner is not getting a promotion to VTB United League automatically, and have to fit some regulations before allowing to compete in the VTB League.[2][3]

HistoryEdit

The Superleague has been formed as the second-tier division of Russian basketball, in 2000, and was called the Super League B. After the 2009–10 season, it was renamed to the current name: Superleague.[4]

The Super League 1 was not controlled by the Russian Basketball Federation (RBF), like the Super League 1 is, but by a separate body named the Professional Basketball League (PBL).[5][6]

From the 2010–11 season onward, the Super League A and Super League B (the previous second division of the Russian basketball pyramid) divisions were united into a single league that serves as the second tier of Russian basketball, named the Super League 1. The 2010–11 season featured 11 clubs.

The 2017–18 season featured 14 clubs.
