National League B or Nationalliga B (German) or Ligue Nationale B (French) is the second tier of the main professional ice hockey league in Switzerland, behind National League A. The winners of this league each season play a best-of-seven series against the bottom team of National League A and, if they win, are promoted, while the National League A team is relegated to National League B.

The attendance in 2014–15 was about 3,500 spectators.
