Football Federation Victoria has today announced the structure of the 2014 National Premier League Victoria competition.
The 30 clubs, announced last week, have been split into two divisions with 14 teams in the top flight and 16 teams in the second division – ‘NPL 1′.
The 2014 senior men and under 20 competitions (NPL and NPL 1) will commence on March 14-16 and conclude on September 14 and October 5 respectively. Teams in both NPL and NPL 1 will play each other twice on a home and away basis with no finals series.
In 2014, the Victorian NPL champion will be determined using the first past the post system and will represent Victoria in the national NPL finals. The first round of NPL national finals sees Victoria play Tasmania’s NPL champion.
