FormatEdit

The competition format consists of two stages. In the first stage, the 80 clubs will be divided in five series of 16 teams, according to geographic criteria. In each series, teams play against each other in a home-and-away double round-robin system.

In the second stage, the five best-placed teams from each first-stage series and the best three runners-up will dispute a series of playoff matches to promote to the LigaPro. The two finalists will be promoted directly. The six bottom clubs of each series will be relegated.
