The league was undergoing a major revamp for the season with the number of clubs expanded from 20 to 24 and the league divided into four regional divisions of six teams each.
Above the 2nd Bundesliga the Bundesliga was organised in a similar fashion. The Second Bundesligas were formed after the German reunion in the early s, originally as four regional leagues, North, East, West and South.

The championship play-offs after the second stage will be reduced from sixteen to twelve clubs with the top two teams in each group advancing directly to the quarter finals while the remaining eight will play a wild card round to determine the other four quarter finalists.
From onwards the Bundesliga was reduced to sixteen clubs while the 2. Bundesliga remains at twenty four, divided into four regional groups.
