Scottish Premiership Past and Present
The Scottish Premiership in its current incarnation has only been around since 2013, but the Scottish top flight has been in existence since 1890.
The division was established after the Scottish Professional Football League (SPFL) was formed by a merger of the Scottish Premier League and Scottish Football League.
There are 12 teams in the competition which was known as Scottish Premier League from 2001, with each playing 38 matches per season.
The season generally runs from August to May and is split into two phases During the first, each club plays three games against every other club, either once at home and twice away or vice versa.
The league splits into two halves from the 34th game onwards, with ‘top six’ and ‘bottom six’ sections established.
Points achieved in the first phase are carried forward, with each club playing a further five games against the others in their own section
For the 2019/20 season, the top placed team in the Scottish Premiership booked a spot in the Champions League first qualifying round.
The second and third placed teams enter the Europa League at the first qualifying round stage, while an additional place is awarded to the winners of the Scottish Cup.
The bottom placed Premiership club at the end of the season is relegated, and swaps places with the winner of the Scottish Championship, providing the winner satisfies entry criteria.
There is also a play-off game staged over two legs between the club finishing 11th in the Premiership against the winners of the Championship play-offs, with the winner granted a place in the top flight the following season (subject to entry criteria).
