The Slovenian Second Football League (Slovene : Druga slovenska nogometna liga or commonly 2. SNL) is the second highest football league in Slovenia. The league was formed in 1991 and is operated by the Football Association of Slovenia.

Contents

Format and rules

In its inaugural season (1991–92), the Slovenian Second League was divided into two regional groups (East and West), with the both winners directly promoting to the Slovenian PrvaLiga. In 1992, a unified league was formed with 16 clubs playing the round-robin system, which lasted until 2003. Two clubs were usually promoted, while the number of those relegated varied with the number of divisions in the Slovenian Third League. In 2003, the league was reduced to twelve teams and only the champion was directly promoted to PrvaLiga, as additional promotion play-offs were introduced for the second place. In 2005 the league was further reduced to ten teams, which played the triple round-robin format.

In 2017, the competition returned to the old system with 16 clubs, used between 1992 and 2003. Each club plays every other club twice, once at home and once away, for a total of 30 matchdays. Teams receive three points for a win, one point for a draw, and no points for a loss. The winner is promoted to the Slovenian PrvaLiga, the second-placed team is qualified for promotion play-offs, while the bottom two teams are relegated to the Slovenian Third League.
