DIVISION 3 (3rd level) 1952/53
From this season on the whole country was incorporated in the promotion and relegation to and from division 3. Thus, below can be seen the utmost northern division 3 leagues in Sweden. Before this season the winners of those groups weren't promoted, probably because of travelcosts and such matters. Furthermore, from 1953/54 the 3rd level in Sweden is heavily expanded. This means that division 3 from 1953/54 will consist of 9 groups of 10 teams each, i.e. 90 teams instead of 6x10 teams as the 1952/53 season. The reason is that it was decided that each 2nd level group should have three 3rd level groups below it. NORRLÄNDSKA NORRA 1. Lycksele IF 18 13 3 2 59-13 29 Promoted 2.
