This season featured 18 teams, divided into three groups of six teams each. The season also featured the reserve sides of seven Indian Super League clubs, none of which were eligible to qualify for the final round.[1] Real Kashmir won the title on 30 May 2018 and earned the promotion to 2018–19 I-League.[2] They also made history becoming first team from state of Jammu & Kashmir to enter the first division of I-League[3]

FormatEdit

Just like the previous season, the I-League 2nd Division will feature a preliminary round and a final round.[4] During the preliminary round, the 18 teams will be divided into three groups of six teams each. All the matches during the preliminary round will be played in a double round-robin basis, in which every team plays all others in their group once at home and once away.[1] The winners of the three groups, along with the best second placed team, will qualify for the final round. The seven Indian Super League reserve sides in the league will not be eligible to qualify for the final round.[4]

During the final round, the four teams will face each other in a single-leg league system at a neutral venue, where each team faces each other once. At the end of the round, the team in first will earn promotion to the next division of Indian football.[4]
