League Two - what's at stake?

Kicking off in August, League Two pits 24 teams against each other, home and away, over the course of 10 gruelling months.

At the end of the season the top 2 in the league are automatically promoted to League One.

The teams finishing in third, fourth, fifth and sixth places in League Two qualify for the Play-Offs - where they get to battle it out for the one remaining promotion place to the League One.

The third and sixth placed teams, and fourth and fifth placed teams, play each other in a two-legged Semi-Final before competing in the Final at Wembley.

At the other end of the final season table, the teams who finish in the bottom 2 places - 23 and 24 - are relegated (demoted) to non league Conference football (Blue Square Premier League).

The League 2 Play-Off Final takes place at Wembley Stadium on a Sunday in late May. Tickets for the game are available via the competing clubs and so select the relevant team above for the contact details. Check out our Wembley Stadium page for details on how to get their and hotels close by.
