Season2023

The NB II is a professional football league in Hungary, recognized as the second tier of the Hungarian football league system. It is officially known as the Merkantil Bank Liga due to sponsorship reasons. The league, which was established in 1901, is administered by the Hungarian Football Federation.

The NB II league is composed of 20 teams, each playing 38 matches in a season. The teams compete in a round-robin format where each team plays every other team twice, once at home and once away. The top two teams at the end of the season are promoted to the OTP Bank Liga, the top-tier league in Hungary. Conversely, the bottom three teams are relegated to the third-tier league, NB III.

The league has been a breeding ground for many talented players who have gone on to make their mark in Hungarian and international football. It has also been instrumental in the development of many clubs that have later achieved success in the top-tier league.

The NB II league has undergone several changes in its format and structure over the years. Initially, it was a regional competition, but it was restructured into a national competition in the 1940s. The number of participating teams has also varied over the years, ranging from 12 to 20.

Despite being a second-tier league, the NB II has a significant following among Hungarian football fans. The matches are known for their competitive spirit and unpredictable outcomes, which add to the excitement and appeal of the league.

The NB II league has also been proactive in embracing technology. In recent years, it has introduced video assistant referee (VAR) technology to assist referees in making accurate decisions. This has helped to improve the fairness and integrity of the competition.

In conclusion, the NB II is a crucial component of the Hungarian football league system. It plays a vital role in the development of players and clubs, and in providing competitive and exciting football for fans. Despite its status as a second-tier league, it continues to make significant contributions to Hungarian football.
