The BTM League 2 is a short season involving 10 groups of 4. The top 2 teams of the group go into the quarterfinals where the winners go into the semi-finals. These matches are played home and away, with the winning teams going into the Finals.
After the finals, 3 teams will be promoted to the BTM League 1.
The BTM League 2 is mostly a “ village competition “ together with a few big-city districts.
The players can be Sunday League footballers, veterans, and youngsters but also some very good players that should be playing in the higher Leagues. This is a serious League some clubs have been very active in the transfer market bringing in some very good players from the higher divisions.
Some of the teams are very ambitious though they play in the lowest league they want better and it started this past weekend.
