Your question is rather late. There will be no prematch starting from the 2013 matching season, so practically it's over.

However, if you still want more info, read this

Also click on the Pre-Match tag link at the bottom of the thread for more info.

Yes. That's it, just the main match and the SOAP, nothing else.
