History

The league was formed in 1991 during the Czechoslovakia era, replacing the former II. ČNL (II. Česká národni liga; Second Czech National League) at the third tier of Czechoslovak football alongside sister league MSFL. [1]

Competition format

The winner of ČFL is promoted to Czech National Football League. In total three clubs are promoted to the ČFL - the winner of Divize A, the winner of Divize B and the winner of Divize C.

The format of the league is unconventional in that it does not allow draws. As of the 2014–15 season, if a match is tied, the winner is decided by a penalty shootout. The winner of the shootout gets two points and the loser gets one. [2] From season 2019–20 on, Junior league (with B teams of first-league clubs) was canceled and the B teams were moved into the ČFL and MSFL. The competition was divided into two groups with 16 teams in each. [3]
