  • This schedule is crazy. I guess they want to end the league so soon because of the Olympics. But end of January is way too early... They are doing like Chinese League.


    And starts only 12 days after the World Cup.


    Japanese and Chinese players will get plenty of rest...let's see if that will pay off at the OG.

  • It's very compact. Starts 2-3 weeks earlier, no mid-season break. 21 matches in 11 weeks. I think that maths out to one rest day (of the weekends) as opposed to 2 or 3 last year.


    And dig on the Monday Play Date of the Final 8--I hope I google understood that correctly :/


    And the Championship matches are back to back instead of a week apart.


    I could have this all totally wrong :rolll: The dates are correct but what they are actually doing on those dates is a bit of a mystery =O


    Short, but each team only played 20 matches last season. 21 this season
