Competition systemEdit

The competition is played in two phases: regular season and playoffs. There are 14 teams in the league and they play against each other twice in the league manner, once at their home and the other away. At the end of the season, the top eight teams qualify for the playoff games. The two lowest placed teams of the Super League, ranking 13th and 14th, relegate into the Second League (TKBL). The two top teams of the Second League are promoted to the Super League.

The playoffs follow a tournament format in three rounds for eight teams: quarterfinals, semifinals and finals. The four winners of the uarterfinals advance to the semifinal round. The two victors of the semifinals compete in the final playoff round for the championship title.
