After the owners voted to extend the playoffs on April 2, 2020, playoff-eligible teams will go from 12 teams to 14 teams, with six wild card playoff games instead of four and two teams instead of four beyond four in the first round.  The pre-season is reduced from four to three games in seasons with 17 regular season games.  The currently active agreement was ratified in 2020 and extends through the 2030 season and includes changes in the league`s revenue distribution, increases in player benefits and improvements in health and safety, finally increasing the regular season to 17 games played and increasing the limits of active executives and training. . . .
