Regular season and title play offs

There will be 6 participating teams in the 2013 Currie Cup Premier Division. These teams will play each other twice over the course of the season, once at home and once away.

Teams will receive four points for a win and two points for a draw. Bonus points will be awarded to teams that score 4 or more tries in a game, as well as to teams losing a match by 7 points or less. Teams will be ranked by points, then points difference (points scored less points conceded).

The top 4 teams will qualify for the title play-offs. In the semi-finals, the team that finish first will have home advantage against the team that finished fourth, while the team that finishes second will have home advantage against the team that finishes third. The winners of these semi-finals will play each other in the final, at the home venue of the higher-placed team.

Relegation play offs

The bottom team on the log will also qualify for the promotion/relegation play-offs. That team will play off against the team placed first in the 2013 Currie Cup First Division over two legs. The winner over these two ties (determined via team tables, with all Currie Cup ranking regulations in effect) will qualify for the 2014 Currie Cup Premier Division, while the losing team will qualify for the 2014 Currie Cup First Division.
