TNA 2014-15 format already defined


The authorities of the Argentine 2nd Division (Torneo Nacional de Ascenso) publicly presented the format of the coming season. There will be two conferences (North and South) with three divisions of four teams each one: Northwest, Córdoba, Litoral, Patagonia, Central and West. In the Northwest will Oberá Tennis Club (Misiones), the promoted UNCAUS (Sáenz Peña, Chaco), Sarmiento (Resistencia, Chaco) and Basketball Villa (Villa Angela, Chaco). Meanwhile, the Cordoba zone will consist in San Isidro (San Francisco), Barrio Parque (Córdoba Capital) Institute (Alta Córdoba) and also promoted Tiro Federal (Morteros).

In the Litoral are La Union (Colón, Entre Rios), Tomás de Rocamora (Concepción del Uruguay), Athletic Echagiie (Paraná) and Unión de Santa Fe.

In the West, the Anzorena (Mendoza Capital), Banda Norte (Río Cuarto, Córdoba), Sportivo 9 de Julio (Río Tercero) and Alianza (San Luis Capital).

Moreover, the Central Division (teams from Buenos Aires) will be represented by San Lorenzo de Almagro, Sport Club (Cañada de Gómez, Santa Fe), Ferro Carril Oeste and Estudiantes Olavarria, while in Patagonia will do the same Ceferino Alianza Viedma (Rio Negro), Hispano Americano (Rio Gallegos, Santa Cruz), Huracán de Trelew (Chubut) and Monte Hermoso Basket.

The regional phase will be played between each division, four-round round-robin (12 games in 6 weeks) and teams up 50 percent of the points for the next round. The conference phase is two-round round-robin, but there are 22 games in 12 weeks and tours. The winner of the regular season is defined in a best-of-three playoff between the leaders of each prior to the finals of the League conference.

Like LNB, all teams (24 in this case) will contest the playoffs. The first 4 in each conference quarterfinals qualify directly and the other eight weill face off each other to define rivals in the mext instance. The first round is best of 3 and eighth-finals best of 5 games. Quarter-finals (zone semifinals) will be cross-conference, and that instance, like the semi-final of the TNA and the second promotion finals, all of them will be played in a best of 5 format, in a 2-2-1 (home-home-away-away-home) order.
