Spain Tier 3

Segunda División B

4th Tier Becomes Playable in-game in the second season (2021/22)

League Guide & Facts


  • The third tier of Spanish football

  • 102 teams

  • The First Phase of the League is divided into 5 regional groups and 10 subgroups

  • 3 groups of 20 teams each and 2 groups of 21 teams, with eight subgroups of ten teams each and two with eleven teams each

  • This is the last season for this format as a new professional 3rd tier will change to a 40 team, 2 group format in 21/22

  • 20/21 will act as a qualifying tournament for this new league system and teams can find themselves competing in 21/22 anywhere from tier 2 to tier 5 based on this season

Promotion & Relegation

  • 1st to 3rd place in each first phase group qualify for a second phase promotion group for a chance to be promoted to tier 2 (These teams are guaranteed at least a place in 21/22 third tier)

  • 4th - 6th place (7th in larger groups) will compete in a second phase to earn the right to play in the new 40 team tier 3 in 20/21. This second phase is divided into 5 groups of either 6 or 7 teams and the top 2 will compete in tier 3 in 21/22. The rest will compete in tier 4

  • 7th - 10th place (8th - 11th in larger groups) will compete in 5 groups and the top 2 from each group (and best third placed) will compete in tier 4 in 21/22. The rest will compete in tier 5

  • Well done if you've taken all that in! It becomes a lot clearer when you start playing and is a great challenge. The league system will change in 21/22 so this will be a one off

Suggested* Additional Nations To Load

Iberian Adventure & Beyond

*As always this is only a suggestion, the leagues listed are in order of importance, feel free to run as many or as little leagues as you think your system can handle. The setup above gives a nice regional feel and maintains historic links with South American nations.

It is advisable however to run as many top tier leagues of major nations as you can to keep the continental club competitions competitive
