2. deild, is the third tier of football in the Faroe Islands. It was founded in 1979 and is organised by the Faroe Islands Football Association. The league was once known as the 3. deild but since 2005, because the top division was renamed Formuladeildin for sponsorship reasons and the second division was renamed 1. deild, the third tier was renamed 2. deild to represent the fact it was the league below 1. deild and the league above the newly renamed 3. deild.

It currently has 10 participating teams. At the end of each season, two teams are relegated and two promoted from what is now the fourth division, pending the fact that the winning team in any given division doesn't already have a senior team in the division it is being promoted to. In such cases the team that finished second will be promoted in its stead. If a team is relegated to a division where one of its teams are already playing, the second best team will move one division down, thereby saving another team from relegation.

At the end of the 2008 season, Fram, who were set to be renamed FC Hoyvík for the 2009 season and AB II finished in the promotion places. Fram (now FC Hoyvík) were promoted to 1. deild, while AB II would only be promoted if their 1st team finished in one of the promotion places in 1. deild. AB's first team eventually won promotion into the Vodafonedeildin, finishing runners-up in 1.Deild. However, AB II were denied promotion to 1.deild and MB Midvágur who finished 3rd in 2.Deild, were promoted instead. Because AB II who finished 2nd, had used illegal players. Though there is still an ongoing debate weather they finished 2nd or 3rd and which team should have been promoted. The following season in 2009 MB Midvágur finished bottom in 1.Deild, only picking up 8 points and were relegated back into 2.deild. Meanwhile AB Argir II won the 2.deild in 2009 and were promoted to 1.deild.
