2015 Campeonato Gaúcho Série B

The Campeonato Gaúcho Segunda Divisão, commonly known as Campeonato Gaúcho Série B, is the third-highest professional football league in the Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Sul. The league is contested between 10 clubs and typically lasts in the first half of the year.

The current champions are Rio Grande, who won the title in the 2014 season, defeating Guarani (VA) by 2-1 aggregate in the finals.

Format

There are 10 clubs in the Campeonato Gaúcho Série B, divided into two groups. During the course of a first phase (from March to June), each team will face the other teams of their group in roundtrip. Teams receive three points for a win and one point for a draw. No points are awarded for a loss. Teams are ranked by total points, then wins, goal difference and goals scored. The top four teams from each group qualified to the next phase. At this stage, all eight clubs face off in round home and away. The top two clubs qualify for the finals. The winner is promoted to the Campeonato Gaúcho Série A2.[1]
