First of three rounds is this weekend. Why three rounds?
“The national championships are split into two phases: Based on last year’s results the team play a first round to decide whether they are going to play in the (playoff-like) ranking games or the relegation games in the second half. These two phases are split across three weekends. This mode is used in lots of other sports here in Europe too and having more than one round also works out for the less experienced teams who often only play Swiss champs but don’t travel to other tournaments.”
