- Before each and every club has completed its first leg matches, the league shall be declared Null and void.
- Where all the clubs in the league have completed the first round fixtures but less than 75% league games have been played, the table standings at the end of the first round shall be considered as the final table standings
- Where at least one club has played more than 75% of the league games, the following formula shall be used to determine the table positions for the respective groups: Total number of points earned from the number of games played, multiplied by the total number of games supposed to be played, divided by the number of games played."
