Second League is the fourth level of football league competition in Estonia arranged by the Estonian Football Association. It consists of 28 teams, divided geographically into two divisions with 14 teams respectively in group East/North and West/South. Until 2013 it was third-top league.
During the season teams play each opponent twice, once at home and once away, for a total of 26 matches. At the end of the season winners of both divisions face each other in one final match to determine the champion of Second League. As in most countries with low temperatures in winter time, the season starts around April and lasts until around the start of November.
At the end of the season winners of both divisions may be promoted to the Esiliiga B. This is providing that the club meets the licensing criteria of the Esiliiga B. Second placed clubs of the divisions face each other in a play-off, the winner of which will play with Esiliiga B eight placed (third bottom) club for promotion to the Esiliiga.
Two clubs from the bottom end of both divisions are relegated to the III Liiga. Third bottom clubs in both divisions will play a playoff with winners of play offs of III Liiga second placed clubs.1
