Football League 2, formerly known as Gamma Ethniki, is the third highest football league in Greece.

History[edit]

It began in 1965 as an amateur championship, while in 1983 it was changed to professional. Although not literally national (it is divided into North and South groups), Football League 2 is considered as a national division.

On August 3, 2010, it was announced that the division had been renamed Football League 2.[1] From season 2013-14, the football League 2 is merged by fourth division championship (Delta Ethniki).[2][3] The new third division will be held in six groups, with the clubs divided basis of geographical criteria, while it will return in an amateur form.[4]
