Since 1993, the league has had 16 teams: one representing each province, and two for the city of Havanamarker. Each team is made up of players from the province it represents. In Havana, most of the top tier players take the field for Industriales, traditionally the strongest team in the league. Other typically strong teams include those from Santiago de Cuba, Pinar del Río and Villa Clara.

The 90-game regular season stretches from November until March, and culminates with an eight team tournament to decide the league champion.

Since 2008-2009 championship, Cuban League is reorganized, and the qualification is by zones, an not in groups as the last 15 years.

The Cuban National Preselection is selected from the Serie and is grouped in Havana to make some practices before go to the competitions. Sometimes more than one team is selected.
