Division 6 is the sixth/eighth(due to sponsorship reason) level in the league system of Swedish football and comprises 78 sections with 5 to 12 football teams in each.

The competition[edit]

There are 100 groups of 15 to 17 teams each representing a local geographical area. During the course of a season (starting in April and ending in October) each club plays the others twice, once at their home ground and once at that of their opponents, for a total of 18 to 22 games depending on the number of teams. The top team in each Division 6 group is promoted to Division 5. The bottom two teams in each Division 6 group are normally relegated to Division 7.[1]


The District Football Associations are responsible for the administration of Division 6. The Swedish Football Association is responsible for the administration of Division 3 and the higher tiers of the Swedish football league system.
