First Division Format for 2018 officially confirmed

Fri Dec 1st 2017

The fixtures for the 2018 SSE Airtricity League season will be released on December 19th.

With 36 league games in the Premier Division season, next season will start on Friday, February 16th whilst the First Division season with 27 league games will kick-off a week later on Friday, February 23rd.

In the First Division, the 2nd/3rd/4th placed clubs will go into the promotion/relegation play-offs at the end of the season. The team which finishes fourth will play the team which finishes third and the winner of that tie will face the team which finishes second. The winner of that tie will then play the team which finishes ninth in the Premier Division in the final promotion/relegation play-off, with all play-offs played over two legs.

The champions of the First Division will be guaranteed automatic promotion to the Premier Division where they will replace the team which finishes 10th in the top tier.
