Promotion to Super League
Play-Off promotion to Super League
Play-Out relegation to Gamma Ethniki
Relegation to Gamma Ethniki

Starting from this season,a play-off group will be held between the teams which finished in positions 3-6 for the last promotion spot, and a play-out group between the teams which finished in positions 13-16 for the last relegation spot.

The same system which is used to the European play-off of First Division (see Superleague Greece) will be applied. The play-off and play-out of Second Division (Football League). Teams play each other in a home and away round robin. However, they do not all start with 0 points. Instead, a weighting system applies to the teams' standing at the start of the play-off mini-league. The team finishing sixth in the Football League will start the play-off with 0 points. The sixth placed team's end of season tally of points is subtracted from the sum of the points that other teams have. The only difference with European play-off of Superleague is that this number is then divided by four (instead to five in Superleague), to give the other teams the points with which they start the mini-league. If necessary, points will be rounded.

As a result, the teams will start the play-offs with the following number of points:

  • OFI – 3 points ((62–50) / 4 )
  • Ethikos Peiraeus – 1 point ((53–50) / 4 = 0.75, rounded to 1)
  • Panserraikos– 1 point ((52–50) / 4 = 0.5, rounded to 1)
  • Pierikos – 0 points ((50–50) / 4 = 0)

Also, the teams will start the play-out with the following number of points:

  • Thrasyvoulos - 2 points ((41-34) / 4 = 1.75, rounded to 2)
  • Doxa Dramas - 2 points ((40-34) / 4 = 1.5, rounded to 2)
  • Ionikos - 1 point ((39-34) / 4=1.25, rounded to 1)
  • Rodos - 0 points ((34–34) / 4 = 0)
