The Bronze League is generally scheduled to play online on BBO, in relaxed 16 boards matches. Matches are scheduled to be played on a Wednesday evening, but by mutual agreement between the captains, can be scheduled to be played at anytime. Each iteration of the Bronze League generally last for 9 weeks of scheduled matches, plus a 2 week period at the end for matches that need to be rescheduled. Local Masterpoints are awarded for winning a match, and cash prizes for teams finishing 1st or 2nd in a division. 

It is a good forum for new teams to begin to appreciate playing in teams matches. 

The Bronze League will continue to run on Wednesday evenings for the foreseeable future.
