I found this interesting article on the Seasiders List forum.
It makes the Australian play-off system look antiquated - even the AFL finals system is less complicated than this. :P

Dave Sowerby

The Belgium Jupiter Pro League plays as normal for 30 games and then
enters a thoroughly random series of play-offs.
I've copied below the entry from Wikipedia and although it seems to
farcical to be true, it is:

Each of the 16 competitors in the Pro League plays each of its 15
opponents twice in the regular season, once at their home stadium and
once at that of their opponents. The regular is played between July and
March. A win earns three points, a draw one point and no points for a
loss. Teams are ranked by total points, then by total wins and finally
by goal difference, number of scored goals, number of away goals and
number of away wins. If teams are still level, a test-match is played in
two legs to determine the final order in the standings.

A play-off phase is then played from March to May. The top 6 teams from
the regular season enter the play-offs 1, with each team playing their
opponents twice. The point system in the play-offs 1 is the same as
during the regular season, except that each team starts with half of the
points they won in the regular season. Points are rounded up to the
nearest full point. At the end of the play-offs 1, the first-placed team
becomes the champion of Belgium. If some teams are level in the ranking,
any points added due to rounding are first withdrawn from their total
points if applicable, before other criteria are taken into account.
Teams ranked 7 to 14 after the regular season enter the play-offs 2,
with teams ranked 7th, 9th, 12th and 14th entering the group A and teams
ranked 8th, 10th, 11th and 13th entering the group B. In each group,
each team plays each of its 3 opponents twice. The winner of each group
plays the final game in two legs, to determine the winner of the
play-offs 2. The winner of the play-offs 2 then plays a home and away
game against either the fourth-placed or fifth-placed team from the
play-offs 1 for the final Europa League ticket, with the opponent
depending on the fact if the Belgian Cup winner ended in the top four of
the play-off 1 or not.

Teams ranked 15th and 16th after the regular season enter the relegation
play-off. It consists of 5 games between the 2 teams. The 15th-placed
team starts the play-offs with 3 points whereas the 16th-placed team
starts from zero. The loser of the relegation play-off is relegated to
the second division. The winner of that play-off enters the Belgian
Second Division Final Round with 3 teams from the second division. The
winner of this Final Round plays in the First Division the season
thereafter.

Anyone fancy an update to the Premier League?????

Dave

All the information that you have shared on this forum this is absolutely right. So this is a bit odd to say that you have a lack of knowledge on this topic. Just keep on searching speedy paper reviews stuff and don’t forget to share with us as well.

Even the bots have picked up on people saying you have a lack of knowledge. :lol:

He's right though, you have copied and pasted this better than anyone else could have.

The system of taking half points into a second league isn't just in Belgium. Switzerland used to have that set up way back in the nineties. Whether it still does though I dodn't know.
