Cyprus - List of Second Level Champions


The Cypriot Second Division started unofficially in the 193435 football season as the second
level of the Cypriot football pyramid. The competition consisted of teams that didn't participate
in the Cypriot First Division and the reserve teams of the Cypriot First Division clubs.
The reserve teams were only allowed to field players that had no more than ten caps with their
team in First Division.  The reserve teams managed to win all the titles of the unofficial period.

The first official second division championship was held in the 1953-54 season, after the
unification of Cypriot Football, without the presence of the reserve teams. 
From that season, the reserve teams enter the new Reserve Teams Championship.

[*] At 197475 season, due to the Turkish invasion of Cyprus which forced many teams that had their headquarters to the north Cyprus to be closed temporarily or 
permanently, Cyprus Football Association decide to have a Special mixed championship of Second & Third Division. In this championship could participate all the teams 
of the Second and Third Division. Participation was optional. The championship had two geographical groups. The winners of each group were playing against each other
