Current season

The Scottish League Two, known for sponsorship reasons as the Ladbrokes League Two,[1] is the fourth tier of the Scottish Professional Football League, established in July 2013.[2] It was formed to directly replace the Scottish Third Division following the merger of the Scottish Premier League and the Scottish Football League.

From season 2014–15, the bottom team enters a play-off against the winner of a play-off between the winners of the Highland and Lowland Leagues for a place in the next season's competition.[3]
