CAMPIONS DE LA LLIGA!
Barça B have been confirmed as Division 2B Group III champions. Winning the group provides the team with a double chance to snap up one of the four berths to be promoted to next season’s second division.
Barça B will now go into the ‘Group Champions Playoffs’ along with the other three group winners (which as things stand at the moment at Racing Santander, Albacete and Lorca FC, although none of those three have clinched their places definitively yet). The Catalans will play one of those sides home and away, and if they win they’ll gain promotion and also get a chance to play the other winning side for the honour of Division 2B champions.
If they are unable to do this, Barça B would still have a second chance to qualify. They would then enter the second round of ‘Non-Champions Promotion Playoffs’ along with the teams that finished 2nd to 4th in each of the four groups, where they would need to negotiate two home and away rounds in order to claim one of the two remaining berths in Division 2 for the 2017/18 season.
