Promotion and Relegation

Please be aware that we will maintain our stance of always promoting two teams even if 2 teams are relegated from HCPCL and that this would affect how many teams are relegated from each division.
We will publish possible relegation scenarios later in the season when the situation is clearer and once we have reviewed applications to join the league.

If anyone has any good action shots from the 2018 season please send them to me and we will put the best ones on the website
