A study was performed on large-N reduction in the continuum three-dimensional Yang-Mills theory. It was proposed that three-dimensional Yang-Mills theory in the planar limit undergoes a phase transition on a torus of side l = lc. It was shown that for l>lc the planar limit is l dependent, as expected of a noninteracting string theory.
