The 3F Superliga is the top league in Denmark men’s professional football championship.
There are 14 teams fighting for the right to hoist Denmark’s premier cup. After the first round of home and away games the competition is split into two “play-off” rounds. The top 6 teams enter the Championship round. The bottom 8 teams play in the Relegation round.
