Ligi is a fantastic option for online betting, with great odds available across the best betting sites listed at EagleBet for final results, total points, and individual set results.
1. Ligi Format
The 1. Ligi is composed of 12 teams, including sides from Istanbul, Ankara and Bursa. Each team plays each other twice, once home and once away, in a double round-robin format. The top eight sides at the end of this competition advance to the play-offs, in which 1st place will play 8th place, 2nd will play 7th and so on.
This section of the competition is a knockout phase, and the team which wins the final of the play-offs is crowned national champion. The one-off nature of these games means that they are far more unpredictable than results over a league campaign, and the play-offs are a huge draw to many involved in online betting, with fantastic odds offered.
The bottom four sides in the league enter a “play out”, in which they all play each other two further times. After this mini-league, the bottom two sides were relegated to the second tier of Turkish volleyball, and replaced by two promoted sides.

The historic giants of the competition, Eczacibasi are the most decorated side in the league’s history, having won the 1. Ligi title 17 times. In the 2014/15, they also won the CEV Champions League, the European volleyball competition, and followed it up with the 2015 FIVB World Club Championship. A year later, they then became the first club to defend their World Champion status, as they defied the odds and won the competition in the Philippines.
