HISTORY AND FORMAT OF THE JAMAICA PREMIER LEAGUE

In 1973, the inaugurate season of the National Premier League was held as the top level of Jamaican professional club football. The competition has produced four Caribean champions: Habour View (2004, 2007) and Portmore United (2005, 2009). As of the 2020 edition, there have been no teams reaching the final game of the CONCACAF Champions League. 

In a season of the league, there are three stages played. The participating clubs play each other once during each stage. In the third stage which includes 33 matches, the teams are split into 2 groups based on their total points and enter the fourth round of the league. 

The highest-ranked six teams contest in the Championship round, and the bottom six teams fight in the Relegation round. The worst two teams are replaced by the top finishers of the second division regional playoffs next season. 

The best two teams at the end of the league qualify for the CFU Club Championship, which is a regional club competition held each spring. A top-four finish in that tournament is the only route for Jamaican teams to join the CONCACAF Champions League and the CONCACAF League
