WHAT IS THE ESTONIA MEISTRILIIGA
The Estonia Meistriliiga is the highest tier of the Estonian football league system. It is also known as the A. Le Coq Premium Liiga due to sponsorships reasons. After the inaugural season in 1992, the Meistriliiga has been held annually as the most expectable football championship, with the participation of the best professional and non-professional clubs in Estonia.
HOW IS THE STRUCTURE OF THE MEISTRILIIGA?
Estonia is a country in Northern Europe that has low temperatures in the wintertime so that the football championship often begins in March and finishes in November. There are 10 clubs taking part in the Meistriliiga. They play each other four times in the league.
At the end of the season, the last-ranked team is relegated to the Esiliiga (Estonia Second Division), and the second last-ranked team plays a two-legged play-off to keep a place in the Meistriliiga next season. Whilst, the winning team qualifies for the preliminary round of the UEFA Champions League, and the runner-up of the competition also has a spot for the Europa Conference League first qualifying round.
The 2021 Meistriliiga was scheduled to begin on 5 March 2021, but it was delayed because of the Covid-19 pandemic until 13 March. The season will be finished on 5 December 2021. Flora are the defending champions.
