The Primera B de Chile, also known as Campeonato Nacional de Primera B, is the second-tier professional football league in Chile. It was established in 1952 and is currently organized by the Asociación Nacional de Fútbol Profesional (ANFP), the governing body for professional football in Chile.

The league operates on a promotion and relegation system with the top-tier league, Primera División, and the third-tier league, Segunda División. This system allows the top performing teams in Primera B to move up to the Primera División, while the lower performing teams are relegated to the Segunda División.

The Primera B league is composed of 16 teams. The season runs from February to December and is divided into two stages: the Opening Stage (Torneo de Apertura) and the Closing Stage (Torneo de Clausura). Each stage is a standalone competition, with teams playing each other twice, once at home and once away. The team with the most points at the end of each stage is declared the winner. If teams are tied on points, goal difference is used to determine the winner.

The champions of the Opening and Closing stages face each other in a playoff to determine the overall champion of the Primera B. The overall champion is promoted to the Primera División. The second promotion spot is determined through a playoff involving the teams that finished 2nd to 6th in the annual table.

Over the years, the Primera B has been a breeding ground for young talent and a stepping stone for teams aiming to compete in the top-tier league. Many successful Chilean footballers have started their careers in the Primera B, and several teams have used the league as a platform to establish themselves in the Primera División.

Despite being a second-tier league, the Primera B has a significant following in Chile. The matches are competitive, and the fans are passionate, contributing to the vibrant football culture in the country. The league has also had its share of memorable moments, from dramatic promotion battles to unexpected upsets.

In conclusion, the Primera B de Chile is more than just a second-tier football league. It is a vital part of Chile's football ecosystem, providing opportunities for teams and players to develop and compete at a high level. It embodies the passion and competitive spirit of Chilean football, making it a must-watch for any football enthusiast.
