DIVISION 3 (3rd level) 1946/47
The swedish third level is being cut down from 17 groups to 4. These reconstructions mean that no teams are being promoted to the second level. At the same time is second level being cut down from 4 to 2 groups, hence the large number of relegated teams from third level. One odd point concerning the reconstruction is that a promotion playoff was played nonetheless. The reason for this was that the decision to cut down the third level was made during the season so a playoff involving winners was played in case the proposal to cut down hadn't been passed. However, a relegation playoff was played to decide which of the second placed teams that were to remain at third level as only 8 of the 16 teams coming second were to stay at third level.
