Landsbankadeild 2006

Úrvalsdeild

The Úrvalsdeild Karla is the premier division football league in Iceland. Because of the harsh winters in Iceland, it is generally played in the spring and summer (May to September). It is run by the Football Association of Iceland and is currently comprised by 12 clubs. UEFA currently ranks the league 39th in Europe.

The top division consists of 12 clubs. Each club faces every other club twice during the season, once at home and once away. At the end of each season, the bottom two clubs are automatically relegated to the second level of the Icelandic league system, the 1. deild karla (First Division), with the top two clubs of the 1. deild karla automatically promoted to the Úrvalsdeild.

In the 2008 season will see for the first time 12 teams in the premier division, a part of KSI Football Association of Iceland attempt to strengthen Icelandic football. Therefore only one team was relegated in the 2007 season and three clubs were promoted from the 1. deild karla (First Division)

KR has won the most titles, 24. Valur is next with 20, and ÍA and Fram follow with 18 each. The current champions of Iceland are FH.
