Kakkonen


Kakkonen

Kakkonen (Finnish for number two or second) is the third tier of the Finnish football league system.

League structure

Kakkonen is divided to three groups of 14 clubs. A club plays each of the others in the same group twice, once at their home stadium and once at that of their opponents. Clubs gain three points for a win, one for a draw, and none for a loss. The group winners may win promotion to Ykkönen while three bottom clubs of each group will be relegated to Kolmonen.
