2021-22 Professional Development League 2

The Professional Development League 2 is the tenth campaign of post-EPPP Under-23 football's second tier, designed for those academies with Category 2 status. A total of 16 teams are split regionally into north and south divisions, with each team facing opponents in their own region twice both home and away and opponents in the other region once. The sides finishing in the top two positions in both regions at the end of the season will progress to a knockout stage to determine the overall league champion. Birmingham City are the defending national champions but have since graduated to Category One.
