The English football league system, which is a series of men’s soccer tournaments for clubs in England, is joined by six teams from Wales and one from Guernsey. The system has a hierarchical format with promotion and relegation between the ranks
Tournaments are at different levels, allowing even the smallest team with the theoretical ability to compete in the system’s highest league. There are currently more than 140 individual leagues, comprising more than 480 divisions, and the exact number of participating clubs changes from year to year as teams enter and leave or even disband, but the number An average of 15 clubs in each league shows that there are more than 7,000 teams of nearly 5,300 clubs members in this soccer league system.
The system includes a pyramid of tournaments, limited by promotion and relegation rules. A certain number of successful clubs in each league may advance to the higher league, while teams that are at the bottom of the group must go down one level. In addition to athletic performance, promotion often depends on whether the higher league conditions are met, especially on the physical and financial issues. According to the theory, there is still a possibility that a local amateur club could play in the top division and become champions of the Premier League. While that is practically impossible, there have been considerable strides by teams throughout the system.
The top five levels per level have only one league. Below that, levels may have tournaments running in parallel, each covering smaller geographic regions. There are tournaments with more than one league. At lower levels the presence of leagues is intermittent, although in some densely populated regions there are still around 20 football teams. There are also tournaments in many other parts of the country that are not officially included in the system as they do not have approval from other leagues, but are still recognized by county football associations. Clubs in these leagues, if they meet the qualifications and facilities, can register to join the tournament that is part of the system.
