To keep play fun and competitive for different skill levels Purple & Gold has an A and B side, with the highest performing teams playing in side A. 

The season has three rounds of seven games, followed by a three-game playoff. At the end of each round the top two teams from B are promoted and the bottom two teams from A are relegated.

The A side winner of the playoffs gets the honour of having their team added to the league trophy, and a prize is awarded to the B side champion.
