- We value the relationship we have with our teams
- Council indicated a 7th might be available later in the season (this has not proved the case)
The maths on this means that a large majority of teams play 13 games over a 16 week season, with a small number (who entered late) getting 12 games. This is less than our usual number (in previous seasons most teams would 14 spread over 16 weeks, and a few would get 13). However, this is better than other city comps (where the average number of games is 12).
