Game format[edit | edit source]
In 2020 basic part were 7 teams playing round-robin with two exceptions (HC Dukla Jihlava did not play HC Frýdek-Místek and SK Horácká Slavia Třebíč did not play VHK ROBE Vsetín, but HC Dukla Jihlava should have played SK Horácká Slavia Třebíč twice just as HC Frýdek-Místek played twice VHK ROBE Vsetín instead), so every team should have played 6 matches (there should have been total of 21 games).
After the basic part should have come the final day when the teams on 3rd and 4th place after the basic part should have played the match for 3rd place and teams on 1st and 2nd place after the basic part should have played the final.
Some matches should have been played at the neutral zone (in HC Poruba stadium RT TORAX ARENA).
