SeasonEdit

It is directly linked to the Handball-Bundesliga, the country's highest tier, by a promotion and relegation system. Before the 2011–12 season, the league played in two regional groups (north and south), since then it has been playing in a nationwide single division format.[3]

Relegation and promotionEdit

The top two placed teams are promoted to the Handball-Bundesliga for the next season. The five last placed teams are relegated to the 3. Liga.
