Each team of every division has to play all the other teams of its division
twice, once at home and the other at the opponent’s stadium. This means that in
Liga ACB the league ends after every team plays 34
Like many other leagues in continental Europe, the Liga
ACB takes a winter break once each team has played half its
schedule. One unusual feature of the league is that the two halves of the season
are played in the same order—that is, the order of each team’s first-half
fixtures is repeated in the second half of the season, with the only difference
being the stadiums used. This procedure is typical in Spanish sports.
Each victory adds one win to the standings; likewise, each loss adds one loss
to the team’s total. At the end of the league, the winner is:
- The team that has most matches won in the ranking.
- If two or more teams are level on points, the winner is the team that has
the most points scored
- If there is no winner after applying the second rule, then the team with the
better head-to-head record between the applicable teams wins
