Segunda B Group I System
Segunda División B comprises a total of 80 clubs that are divided in four group of 20 teams on a regional basis.
Although Segunda B Group I is run by the Real Federación Española de Fútbol, the system on which the competition is based is the same as the Liga BBVA and Liga Adelante which are controlled by the LFP.
Segunda B Group I is disputed annually, beginning at the end of August or start of September and finishing in late May or early June of the following year.
The 20 teams in Segunda B Group I play each other twice - once at home and once away - for a total of 38 matches. The order of the games is decided by lottery at the beginning of each season. The winning team receives 3 points, the losing team 0 points, and in the case of a draw, a point is allotted to each side.
At the end of the season, the team that has accumulated most points is proclaimed Champion of Segunda División B Group I and is automatically qualified for the Copa del Rey.
Promotion to Segunda A
Once the regular season is over, the top four teams in Segunda B Group I dispute play-off against the top four teams of each of the other Segunda B group for promotion to Segunda División A.
The play-offs consist of two knock out rounds played over two games (home and away).
The four Segunda B champions are drawn against each other in two matches over two legs. The two winners of these games are automatically promoted and then play a further match that decides the national Segunda B champion.
The remaining 12 teams play against each other to bring the number down to six. These are joined by the two losing champions and these teams play down (8->4->2) until the last two teams are promoted to Segunda División A.
Relegation to Tercera División
The four last placed teams in each Segunda B Group are relegated to Tercera División.
Furthermore, the four 16th placed teams dispute play-offs to decide on the relegation of a further two sides, so a total of 18 Segunda B clubs are relegated to Tercera.
