The 2. národní hokejová liga (Second National Hockey League) is the third-level ice hockey league in the Czech Republic under the Chance Liga. It began in 1993.

Format Edit

From 1993 to 2001 the league was divided into the Western and Eastern divisions. Since the 2001/2002 season the current division to Western, Central and Eastern applies, with the exception of the 2008/2009 season when the Central Division was incorporated into the Western Division. From the 1996/1997 season the play-offs were introduced, they were joint for both divisions. From 1999 to 2001 the Western and Eastern division had separate play-offs. From the 2001/2002 season the Western and Central divisions have joint play-offs, while the Eastern Division has separate play-offs.

For the 2009/2010 season, 33 teams are divided into the Western, Central and Eastern divisions. Winners of the league play-offs play promotion play-offs with the worst teams from the Chance Liga.

Since season 2018-19 there are four divisions - Northern Division, Central Division, Southern Division and Eastern Division. There are seven teams in each division. Northern Division and Central Division form Western Conference and Southern Division and Eastern Division form Eastern Conference. Every team plays four games with each opponent from its division and two games with each team of second division from its conference. All in all, every team plays 38 games. After that, four best teams from every single division go to the play-off (best-of-five; 1st from ND vs. 4th from CD, 2nd from ND vs. 3rd from CD,... and 1st from SD vs. 4th from ED, 2nd from SD vs. 3rd from ED,...). Winners of both play-off will fight in final against each other (best-of-seven). The winner of the final will proceed into the Chance Liga. Two worst teams from every division will play against each other (6th from ND vs. 7th from ND,...). Losers from this matches will play next season in the regional championship.
