The 2020–21 2. Bundesliga is the 47th season of the 2. Bundesliga. It began on 18 September 2020 and conclude on 23 May 2021.[1] The season was originally scheduled to begin on 31 July 2020 and conclude on 16 May 2021,[2] though this was delayed due to postponement of the previous season as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The fixtures were announced on 7 August 2020.[3]

Effects of the COVID-19 pandemic[edit]

On 3 September 2020, the DFL General Assembly voted to extend the use of five substitutions in matches to the 2020–21 season, which was implemented at the end of the previous season to lessen the impact of fixture congestion caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.[4] The use of five substitutes, based on the decision of competition organisers, had been extended by IFAB until 2021.[5]
