- The National League consists of the top 32 teams in NSE. It is played out over 4 Weeks on Tuesday evenings.
- The National League is a modified version of a Swiss Bracket, where teams are matched up against opponents with the same number of wins.
- Each week, teams play 3 Best-of-5 matches. By winning all 3 matches, a team will earn maximum points. Meanwhile, the four teams who lose all 3 matches are relegated.
- The 4 relegated teams are replaced with the top 2 teams from the division below (who are competing in a league with a similar structure designed to create 4 clear "winners" every week).
- Each week the bracket is reset and played out again (with the newly promoted teams replacing the relegated ones).
- A team's final position in the league table is determined by the total number of points they are able to accumulate over the course of all 4 weeks.
- In the last week of league play there is no relegation from Lower Nationals, but there is still promotion from Regionals - increasing the number of teams in the overall National League to 34.
- The 6 teams with the most points qualify for the Championship Playoffs, while the next 12 drop into the Challenger Playoffs. The remaining 16 take part in the 3rd Division Playoffs.
- Only Championship Playoff teams are able to win the overall NSE Winter Championship, including the £600 Prizepool.
