There are 16 clubs in Allsvenskan. Each club plays the others twice (home and away) for a total of 30 games. The method of calculating the points of a single game is that the winner gets 3 points, the loser gets 0 points, and both sides get 1 point for a tie. The two lowest placed teams at the end of the season are relegated to Superettan and the top two teams from Superettan are promoted in their place. The third lowest team in Allsvenskan plays a relegation/promotion play-off against the third placed team in Superettan.The winners of Allsvenskan qualify for the UEFA Champions League, the runner-up together with the third placed team in the table qualify for the UEFA Europa League as well as the team who wins the Sweden Cupen. In case the winner of the Cup has already qualified to Champions League or Europa League, the third Europa League spot is given to the team that finishes fourth in Allsvenskan.
