The Scottish Premiership is the top league of Scottish football, consisting of 12 teams. The team to earn the highest points over the 38 match season is the champion, whilst the bottom side are relegated and the second bottom play in a play-off against a team from the Scottish Championship.
The league is is unique in the fact that it is split into two phases – phase 1 in which all teams play 33 matches – 3 games against every other team before the league is split into a top 6 and bottom 6. The second phase involves teams playing a further 5 matches against the 5 other clubs from its section, with clubs being unable to move out of their section despite if they finish on a higher number of points.
The 2019 – 2020 season was suspended in March 2019 due to the Covid-19 pandemic and eventually curtailed in May, with average points per game used to determine final league positions. Celtic were crowned champions for the 9th consecutive season with Hearts relegated, replaced by Dundee United.
