The 2. Liga, also known as the Austrian Football Second League, is the second-highest professional division in Austrian football. It was founded in 1974, replacing the Regionalliga as the second tier of the football league system in Austria. The league operates under the jurisdiction of the Austrian Football Association (ÖFB).

The 2. Liga comprises 16 teams, each playing 30 matches in a season, which typically runs from July to May. The league operates on a promotion and relegation system with the Austrian Bundesliga, the top-tier league, and the Austrian Regional League, the third-tier league. The top team at the end of the season is promoted to the Bundesliga, while the bottom teams are relegated to the Regional League.

The 2. Liga has been a breeding ground for young talent, with many players using the league as a stepping stone to the Bundesliga and other top European leagues. It has also been a platform for clubs to establish themselves and gain promotion to the top tier of Austrian football.

The league has undergone several changes in its format and sponsorship over the years. In 2018, it was rebranded from "Erste Liga" to "2. Liga" to align with the naming conventions of other European football leagues. The league's current title sponsor is HPYBET, a sports betting company, resulting in its official name being HPYBET 2. Liga.

The 2. Liga is known for its competitive nature, with the battle for promotion and relegation often going down to the final matches of the season. It is also recognized for its commitment to developing Austrian football, with a rule requiring each team to have a certain number of players under the age of 21 in their matchday squad.

The league's matches are broadcasted on television and radio, and also streamed online, allowing fans from all over the world to follow the action. Despite being the second tier, the 2. Liga has a passionate fan base, with matches often drawing large crowds.

Over the years, the 2. Liga has been won by various clubs, with some going on to achieve success in the Bundesliga. The most successful club in the league's history is FC Liefering, the feeder team for Red Bull Salzburg, which has won the league multiple times.

In conclusion, the 2. Liga is an integral part of Austrian football, providing a platform for clubs and players to develop and compete at a high level. It is a league that is rich in history and tradition, and continues to play a vital role in the growth of football in Austria.
