The 2nd Women's Football Bundesliga is the second league competition for women's association football in Germany. It is divided into two groups: north and south. The winner of each group, if not a reserve team of a Bundesliga side, is promoted to the Bundesliga, the last two places of each group are relegated to the Regionalliga.

The 2nd Bundesliga is planned to be played as one group of 14 teams by the 2018–19 season, with second teams of clubs being allowed to have only three players older than 20 years. The number of teams qualified will be determined after the 2017–18 season.[1][2]
