The format for the Northern Arena Clash of Clans League is a bit different in each of the two divisions, so let's just jump straight in with an explainer.
NACC League Division 1 format
Single round-robin league, with 18 invited teams. This means all teams will play each other once. The winner will be decided by the placements of every team at the end of the season.
This means there will be no playoffs etc and the winner will be whoever finishes 1st in the league, and the rest of the positions reflect their final standing in Division 1. This format will emulate that of a Sports league such as the Premier League (English).
NACC League Division 2 format
Single round-robin league with 18 accepted teams from applications. This means each team will play each other once. There will be playoff matches. The top 2 teams at the end of the season are automatically promoted to Division 1.
Teams placing 3-6 will fight it out in the playoffs for the final promotion place. The semi-final will be Bo2. And so will the Final.
