Switzerland challenge league
The Swiss Challenge League or Brack.ch Challenge League is the second highest level of the Swiss football league system. Ten teams play in the Challenge League. The winners of the league are promoted to the Super League, while the bottom team descends to the first league.
Since 2018, the Liechtenstein FC Vaduz plays in the Challenge League, while Liechtenstein clubs play in the Swiss league structure.
The Challenge League is partly professional. In 2011, about half of the players in the Challenge League were in addition to football in other professions. Unlike other countries, Switzerland does not differentiate between professional and semi-professional football.
The league was called National League B until it was restructured in 2003 and converted into the "Challenge League".
During the National B-era, the top clubs were "promoted" to a round-robin playoff with the lowest teams in National League A to determine promotion and relegation. From 2003 to 2012, the second-placed team played a two-legged playoff against the ninth-placed team in the Super League. The winner played in the upcoming season in the higher league. In 2012, with the creation of the 1st League Promotion, the league was reduced to 10 teams in a 1-on-1-off promotion / relegation format, eliminating the playoffs.
