Belgian Women’s Super League- where women are praised in sports
Despite a fewer number of competitions in football, there are still numerous women’s football tournaments around. The Belgian Women’s Super League is one of the leagues for Belgian Women as a qualifier for the Champions League.
What is the Belgian Women’s Super League
The Belgian Women’s Super League is the top-flight women’s football competition in Belgium. This is a young league with its inception in 2015. It was founded after the ending of BeNe League, in which Be refers to Belgium and Ne indicates Netherland, the highest football league for women in these two European countries that only lasted for three seasons.
How does the Belgian Women’s Super League work?
The format and number of participants of the Belgian Women's Super League have varied from season to season. In the first season, there were eight teams participating in the league, which was divided into two phases. The first stage was the round-robin tournament and a scoring system ranked teams in positions from the top to the bottom based on their aggregate points. The second phase (or called the championship group) was the championship playoff that comprised the top four teams from the first stage. However, only half of the points were transferred to this stage.
The remaining teams played another double round-robin, and the last-place team would be relegated to the Belgian Women’s First Division, while the eventual winner of the league qualified for the UEFA Women’s Champions League.
In the 2016-17 edition, there were only seven squad participants and the league occurred without the presence of the second stage. Each team played with the other four times, which meant each of them had to join 24 matches in total. In case they ended up equal on points, the number of wins and goal difference used to break the tie, as in the men’s Belgian First Division A.
In the next season, the number of teams continuously decreased with only six teams participating. The championship playoff was played again as in the first season. This year, the Belgian Women’s Super League gathers 10 women’s football teams.
