The Campeonato Mato-Grossense is the football league of the state of Mato Grosso, Brazil.

Format

First Division 2006

First stage:

  • The teams are divided in two groups of six teams.
  • Double round-robin, in which all teams from one group play home-and-away games against all teams within the group.
  • Home-and-away playoff with the top teams of each group. The winner is crowned the champion of the first stage.
  • The teams last placed in each group are relegated to the second division.

Second stage:

  • The teams are divided in two groups of five teams.
  • Double round-robin, in which all teams from one group play home-and-away games against all teams of the other group.
  • Home-and-away playoff with the top teams of each group. The winner is crowned the champion of the second stage.

Third stage (if necessary):

  • Home-and-away playoff with the winners of the first and second stages.

If a team wins both stages (first and second) it is crowned the champion. If not, the third stage is disputed, and the winner is the champion.

As in any other Brazilian soccer championship, the format can change every year.
