History

The C Division did not always exist. In the first years of the A and B Divisions, Beta Ethniki was fed through the local prefectural leagues usually with playoffs involved. The National C Division was established for the 1983 season. At first, it consisted of a single league - as in England - but, as of its second year, it went to a 2-league (North and South) competition. The single league format was tried once more between 2000 and 2004 but, once again C Division has gone to two leagues. In the 2017 this division consisted of 8 groups dividing 100 clubs, based on geographical criteria. In 2010, the C Division was named Football League 2.
