The teams will play each other home and away and the two best will advance to the quarter finals and play again home and away, aswell in the semifinals and final. this will make a total of 12 matchdays.
From 10th to 12th august 2006, a cup for the three current champions will be held in Liepaja.
I think that is finally a good idea. I am maybe wrong but does the winner of the Royal league got something at the end ?

I mean, will it be a competition for nothing or is it recognized by the UEFA ?

i don't think the winner gets an extra UEFA spot or anything, but it's surely more interesting for the teams and spectators to play against teams from neighbouring countries and it's also more profitable.

Im guessing it will be like the skandinavian Royal League. A off season friendly league with the top clubs from the region. The main thing is that it shoud not interfare with the national championships.

i won't draw any conclusions before the league has even started. it's a good format imo, and will give the clubs more tough games.
and it's pretty pointless to compare this to the one during the soviet times.
