The Russian Championship will consist of 14 teams, so the Regular Season will have 26 rounds in total.

After that, the first and the second placed team will advance directly to the Final-Six, while the teams from the 3rd to the 10th place will play each other to decide who will win the remaining 4 tickets for the final tournament. The last placed team in the Regular Season will be relegated.

Also, it is important to mention that the main criteria for the standings during the Regular Season will be number of wins, while the second criteria will be number of points. 

The 2016/17 Russian Superleague will start on September 27.
