Belgian Second Division

From its inception in 2016 until 2020, the season consisted of two separate competitions in which all 8 teams played each other twice. The winners of both competitions faced each other in a two-legged playoff with the winner crowned champions and promoted to the Belgian First Division A. For the remaining teams, until 2019, the top three teams (excluding the promoted team), played together with the teams finishing in the positions 7 through 15 of the Belgian First Division A in a playoff for a ticket into the UEFA Europa League. The remaining four teams played a relegation playoff, with the last team relegating into the Belgian First Amateur Division. From 2019, the top six teams all took part in the Europa League playoffs (including the promoted team), with only the bottom two teams playing the relegation playoff in which they play each other five times.The 2020–21 will no longer see two separate competitions, but rather one double round-robin league in which all teams play each other four times. At the end of the season, the top-ranked team will be crowned champions and promote, while the second-placed team will play a two-legged promotion playoff against the 15th-place finisher from the Belgian First Division A. The team finishing in last place will be relegated to the Belgian National Division 1.
