2017

The 2017 winter cup edition brought together Latvian, Estonian and Lithuanian clubs 
with a new competition format.
The new system foresaw that not all clubs would have had the same number of games,
as well as team opponents in the tournament would have been different. Consequently, 
the winning percentage was used to determine winners.
