Tweede Divisie

The Tweede Divisie (English: Second Division) was the lowest professional football league in the Netherlands. It was established in 1956, together with the Eredivisie and the Eerste Divisie. Between 1956 and 1960 and between 1962 and 1966, the league consisted of two divisions, Tweede Divisie A and Tweede Divisie B. The league was disbanded in 1971. Six clubs were promoted to the Eerste Divisie (De Volewijckers, FC Eindhoven, FC VVV, Fortuna Vlaardingen, PEC and Roda JC), while the other eleven teams became amateur clubs.

Since the end of 2014 there are plans for a new, semi-professional Tweede Divisie, to be made up of 4 reserve teams and 14 Topklasse clubs, starting in season 2016/2017. These plans for changing the league system were approved in a KNVB assembly in December 2014. Thus, the Topklasse and leagues below it will decrement by one level, and furthermore, promotion and relegation among the second to fourth divisions will be mandatory.[1][2]
