TeamsEdit

A total of 40 teams will contest the league divided into four groups, Eteläinen (Southern), Pohjoinen (Northern), Läntinen (Western) and Itäinen (Eastern). 30 returning from the 2012 season, two relegated from Ykkönen and eight promoted from Kolmonen. The champion of each group will qualify to promotion matches to decide which two teams get promoted to the Ykkönen. The bottom two teams in each group and the worst eight-placed will qualify directly for relegation to Kolmonen. Each team will play a total of 27 matches, playing three times against each team of its group.

FC Hämeenlinna and HIFK were relegated from the 2012 Ykkönen, while AC Kajaani and Ilves were promoted to the 2013 Ykkönen.

FC Espoo, FC Kiffen, FC Kiisto, HauPa, JIlves, LoPa and PK-35/VJS were relegated from 2012 Kakkonen.
