The Finals Series for all divisions will be contested in the following format;
First and second-placed sides will meet in the Major Semi Final, with a win taking the victors straight to the Grand Final while the other has a second chance in the Preliminary Final. Who they meet in the Preliminary Final will be determined by the result of the Minor Semi Final, played out between third and fourth place. The winner of the Minor Semi Final will advance to the Preliminary Final.
