The Dutch Tweede Divisie in the 1962–63 season was contested by 34 teams. Due to a lot of teams entering from the higher Eerste Divisie after a sanitation there, there were 22 new entrants.

Teams were divided in two groups of seventeen teams. The champions played a play-off for promotion. After that match, a mini-tournament was held to determine a second team that would be promoted. It turned out that group B runners-up BVV would be promoted and not group-B champions Haarlem.

New entrants[edit]

There were only twelve teams that had been participating in this league last season, meaning there were 22 new entrants. A lot of the new entrants were teams that were promoted in the previous seasons of the Tweede Divisie. Due to the sanitation in professional football by the KNVB, a lot of teams were back where they started.
