Clubs participating in the next edition of both men’s and women’s Brazilian Championships united for a single-game final to determine the new titleholders.
In a meeting with the Brazilian federation (CBV), the Superliga clubs, both men’s and women’s, took a decision to play one game each in the final in the 2022-23 season. Actually, it was a series of meetings at the CBV headquarters in Rio de Janeiro, last week, after which the officials of the 24 participants of the next country’s national championship agreed to unify, after voting, the regulation for the new title format. It was the condition of TV Globo to broadcast the two finals. In the last edition of the Superliga, the men’s playoff finals between Sada Cruzeiro and Fiat/Gerdau/Minas were broadcast by this TV network. As for Dentil Praia Clube vs Itambé Minas, in the female category, it wasn’t.
Historically, the Superliga finals have taken place in several formats: best-of-five games, best-of-three, sometimes in a neutral venue, other times in a venue of one of the participating teams, and there were also seasons when the final was played in a single game. For 2022-23, CBV will determine the court for matches of the finals, four to five months before.
