The 2012–13 season of the Belgian Second Division (also known as Belgacom League for sponsorship reasons) began on 22 August 2012 and ended in April 2013. The season was won by Oostende, who were thus promoted to the Belgian Pro League. Mouscron-Péruwelz, Westerlo and WS Woluwe played the second division final round but lost this to Cercle Brugge, resulting in no other team gaining promotion. At the bottom end of the table, Sint-Niklaas and Oudenaarde were relegated, while Heist were saved due to the bankruptcy of Beerschot AC.

Team changes[edit]

After promotion and relegation, only 13 teams of the previous season remained in the league, with 5 others being replaced:

1Beerschot, who were relegated from the Belgian Pro League, went bankrupt just after the season. As a result the 16th placed team (Heist) was able to remain in the Second Division, while Oudenaarde had to play the relegation round instead of directly relegating. 2During Oudenaarde-Woluwe, Woluwe substituted one of their players for an unregistered player and initially lost the game with a 5-0 score due to forfeit. The Belgian FA later decided that Oudenaarde would not gain 3 points and the result would be cancelled. Oudenaarde then refused to play the relegation round and forfeited their playoff matches, causing them to be relegated.

Period winners[edit]

Like before, the season was divided into three periods. The first ten matchdays together form the first period, matchdays 11 to 22 form period two and the last 12 form period three. The three period winners take part in the Belgian Second Division Final Round together with the winner of the 2012–13 Belgian Pro League relegation playoff. The winner of this final round gets to play in the 2013–14 Belgian Pro League.

The first period was won by WS Woluwe and the second and third by Oostende. As Oostende won the title, Mouscron-Péruwelz and Westerlo were given the right to take part in the Final Round as the two highest finishing teams not yet entitled.
