In order to make the League more competitive and attractive to fans, the Hellenic Football Federation (EPO) proceeded to changes in the league’s format. The following changes will take place this season: 

  • The champions of the local EPS leagues will be automatically promoted to the Gamma Ethniki.
  • The 2017-18 Gamma Ethniki will have 8 groups of 13-14 teams each.
  • The 8 Gamma Ethniki group champions will compete in a playoff for four promotion spots to the Football League.
  • The winner of the Locals’ Cup, where solely clubs from the local championships will compete in, will automatically be promoted to the Gamma Ethniki. In the case that the Cup winner has already been promoted to the Gamma Ethniki via their league results, the runner-up will be promoted to the Gamma Ethniki if the respective club is in the A local division.
