The league adopted a new format for this season, bringing up extra teams from the second division to fill empty slots. As a result, teams were split into two groups with the stronger teams in Group A and the weaker teams in Group B. Each half will play the first set of round robin games before the international break and games have been rearranged heavily over that time period.
