Twelve teams are set to compete in a single table, 132-match regular season matches. Each side will play 22 regular-season games, with 11 home games and 11 away games. The league announced that “a significantly smaller number of contests have been scheduled during FIFA windows, allowing for fewer conflicts” with international windows.
