Template:Infobox sports league

National League A (NLA) is a professional Ice hockey league in Switzerland. It is the top tier of the Swiss hockey league system and of the two-tier National League. Prior to the 2007-08 season, the league was officially called Nationalliga A (German), (Template:Lang-fr, Template:Lang-it). The NLA has the most attended hockey club in Europe, SC Bern, and is also the most attended league within the same continent.

Season structure

During the regular season, each of the 12 teams play 50 games. The top eight teams after the regular season qualify for the playoffs to determine the Swiss champion in best-of-seven series'. The bottom four teams in the standings play a relegation tournament in which each team retains their regular season points and play an additional 6 matches. Following those matches, the two bottom ranked teams will play each other in a best-of-seven series, with the loser then playing the winner of the National League B playoffs in a best-of-seven series for a spot in the successive NLA season.
