Liga 2 is the second-tier of football competition system in Indonesia, organized by PSSI. Before 2017, this competition was named the Liga Indonesia Premier Division.[1]


The competition is usually divided into several groups because of geographic and amount of participants factors. The 2010–11 season was sponsored by Ti-Phone, and was called as Liga Ti-Phone.

As a result of continuing conflict between PT Liga Indonesia (LI) and PT Liga Prima Indonesia Sportindo (LPIS), there were two different Liga Indonesia Premier Division being organized for 2011–12 season, one for the Indonesia Super League and the other for Indonesian Premier League. Starting the 2014 season Premier Division is organized again by PT Liga Indonesia after LPIS was dissolved.

Prior to the formation of Indonesia Super League in 2008, Premier Division was the Indonesian top-flight football league. Along with Indonesia Super League, Premier Division is a fully professional competition.

In January 2017, PSSI renamed the competitions to Liga 2.[1]
