HistoryEdit

The third tier league was founded in 1973 as 3. deild karla[2] with 11 teams.[3] In 1978 it was rebranded as 2. deild karla. On 13 March 2020, the 2019–20 season was postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak in Iceland.[4] The day after, the Icelandic Basketball Federation canceled the rest of the season.[5]

NotesEdit

  1. ^ KFÍ, Breiðablik and Eiðar played a three team finals. KFÍ won both its games and Breiðablik beat Eiðar.
  2. ^ ÍFL had originally defeated Bolungarvík during the group stage of the playoffs and Gnúpverjar in the finals.[13] However, ÍFL had used an illegal player and as an result of an official complaint, Bolungarvík was awarded a 2–0 victory which meant they finished with the best record in their group and faced Gnúpverjar in the finals rematch.[14][15]
  3. ^ KR-b had the best record at the time of cancelation, with 16 wins in 19 games. KV had the best record of non-reserve teams with 14 victories in 17 games.[28]
  4. ^ Best of three playoff series. Ármann won 102-77 and 103-73.
