Third leagues to get underway this weekend

Joined logo of the Third LeaguesJoined logo of the Third LeaguesAll five groups in the third leagues will begin the new season this weekend on both Saturday and Sunday.

The format stays the same as last season. Each group has 12 teams, meaning that 22 rounds will be played. After the completion of those games, the winners of the five groups will be joined by the 8th placed team in the Second League to participate in a play-off for the final three sports in the 2016/17 edition of the Second League.

When it comes to relegation, the bottom two teams in each group will be sent down. Additional teams will be relegated from one or two of the five groups, but that depends on which clubs get relegated from the Second League. For example, last season both relegated Second League teams belonged to the Third League West, so four teams faced the drop in that group, instead of two.

Here are the Round 1 matchups in all five groups:
