League 2

League Two is the fourth tier of the English football, and is the lowest structure in the English football leagues. It acts as a bridge between the rest of the Football League, National League, and the rest of the non-leagues.

League 2 consists of 24 teams who play each other on a home and away basis across the season. Teams are competing for promotion, prize money (on the basis of league position) and to avoid relegation to National League. This can mean a financial disaster for any team.

The team that finishes first in the league is crowned champions, and, together with the sides that finish second and third in the table, they are promoted automatically to League 1. The sides that finish between fourth and seventh places at the end of the regular season enter into a two-legged knock-out competition, with the winners of the two semi-finals meeting in a one-off final at Wembley to decide the final promotion spot.

At the other end of the spectrum, the teams that occupy the last two places in the table at the end of the season automatically relegate to the National League.
