The 2015–16 Championnat de France amateur 2 is the 18th season of the fifth tier in the French football league system in its current format. The competition is contested by 112 clubs split geographically across 8 groups of 14 teams each. The teams include amateur clubs (although a few are semi-professional) and the reserve teams of professional clubs.

Teams

22 teams were promoted as champions of the Division d'Honneur of the regional leagues. 12 teams were due to be relegated from the CFA, however two were eventually reprieved due to demotions or resignations of other teams. 7 teams due to be relegated to the regional leagues were also reprieved.

On 30 May 2015, Le Poíre-sur-Vie VF resigned from the National division, and took the place of their reserve team in CFA2, with the reserve team being relegated to the regional league.[1]

On 5 June 2015, US Colomiers were placed in CFA2, following their relegation from the National, due to an administrative failure regarding the registration of an amateur player.[2] However, this decision was overturned by appeal on 15 July 2015.[3]

On 30 June 2015, CSO Amnéville requested relegation to the regional league.[4]
