The "Ligue Basket" structure for French women's basketball has been modified with the objective of making the second division more competitive.

NF1 is the third division for women playing basketball in France in the national leagues and Ligue Féminine 2 (LF2 /L2/L2F) has become the new second division.

For 2010-2011 there are 16 teams. But from 2011-2012 the number of teams will be reduced to 14.

All the teams playing in this division must also have a basketball academy and a second senior team. However the rules for promotion remain the same.

The team that is first at the end of the regular seasons wins automatic promotion and will host the Championship final four.

The second spot will be awarded to the winner of the final four. If the winner of the regular season also wins the final four, then the finalist will be offered the second place.
