2024 Season: The 2024 Season Format is Set (Major League Rugby)

  • Structure:
  • Two divisions made up of six teams each
  • Each club plays a home and away series against in-division opponents
  • Each club plays every team in opposite division once (either home or away)
  • But: MLR did not announce how many teams will qualify for the playoffs, so fans are wondering if it'll be six or eight teams total.
