Group 1 consists of teams from western Switzerland, which is usually French-speaking. Group 2 consists of teams from Central Switzerland, which is predominantly German-speaking. Group 3 consists of teams from Eastern Switzerland (and Liechtenstein) with German and Italian speaking regions.
A total of two teams will be promoted to the first league at the end of the season. This is determined by a decision-making competition involving the two best teams in each group. The two lowest teams of each group descend from this division to the 2nd Liga Interregional, which is the highest of the amateur leagues in Swiss football and is divided into 5 regional groups.
