The new BAFA league is formatted into a three tier competition each with a north and south subdivision. At the top is the premiership league where the top teams of the nation compete against one another. The next tier is the NFC and the SFC 1 league.
Then lastly the NFC and SFC 2 league. Each team is placed based on their region in the country and the skill level of the team are placed in their appropriate division.
After a disappointing 2-8 season last year in the premiership league the Cats find themselves in the SFC 1 league with 7 other teams of a similar skill level which means we should see some closely fought games.
