The 2. Frauen-Bundesliga is the second league competition for women's association football in Germany. It is played as one group. For its first 14 seasons the league was divided into two groups: north and south. The winner and the runner-up, if not reserve teams of Bundesliga sides, are promoted to the Bundesliga; the last three places are relegated to the Regionalliga. Until the 2017–18 season, in each group, the winner was promoted and the bottom two were relegated.
