The second level in Peruvian football consists of the Copa Perú (nowadays only for teams outside of Lima) and the Segunda Profesional, a league open only to teams from Lima and nearby cities. Since 2006, teams from all over the country have progressively gained access to this tournament.
From 1988 to 1990, the winner was promoted to the "Regional Metropolitano" section of the First Division. In 1991 no promotion took place due to the reorganization of the First Division. In 1992 the winner of the Segunda Profesional played off against three other clubs for two promotion places. From 1993 until 1997 the winner was promoted directly to the First Division. From 1998 to 2001 the winner played-off against the one but last team of the First Division (no win in these playoffs, therefore no Segunda Dvision champion was promoted). In 2002, the winner was promoted to First Division. In 2004 and 2005 the winner did not gain direct promotion, but along with the runner-up, they entered the Copa Perú (etapa Nacional). In 2006, again the winner got direct promotion, and in 2008 the winner and runner-up got promotion.
