At the same time, automatic promotion and relegation between the Fourth Division and the Football Conference was introduced for one club, replacing the annual application for re-election to the League of the bottom four clubs and linking the League to the developing National League System pyramid.
Emblematic of the confusion that was beginning to envelop the game, the number of clubs at the top of the league would return to 22 for the —92 season, which increased competitiveness in the —91 season as four teams would be promoted from the Second and Third Divisions instead of the normal three with seventh place being the minimum position for the playoffs , while in the Fourth Division an unprecedented five promotion places were up for grabs, with eighth place being high enough for the playoffs.
The end of the ban on English clubs in Europe also helped boost interest in English football. However, the economy was now in another recession , and added to that the clubs in the top two English divisions were faced with the requirement of having all-seater stadiums by —95 to comply with the Taylor Report that followed the death of 96 Liverpool fans as a result of the Hillsborough disaster in April The League also expanded to 93 clubs for the —92 season and planned to raise the number again to 94 clubs for —93, but after Aldershot and Maidstone United both went out of business within a few months of each other in mid, this plan was abandoned.
The issues creating the uncertainty in the game all centred on money. At the close of the season, a proposal for the establishment of a new league was tabled that would bring more money into the game overall.
The Founder Members Agreement, signed on 17 July by the game's top-flight clubs, established the basic principles for setting up the FA Premier League.
The argument given at the time was that the extra income would allow English clubs to compete with teams across Europe.
During the —92 season, the First Division clubs resigned from the Football League en masse and on 20 February , the Premier League was formed as a limited company working out of an office at the Football Association's then headquarters in Lancaster Gate.
There was no change in competition format; the same number of teams competed in the top flight, and promotion and relegation between the Premier League and the new First Division remained on the same terms as between the old First and Second Divisions.
The —92 season had ended with 92 clubs in the Football League, with the 93rd club, Aldershot, having been declared bankrupt and forced to resign from the Fourth Division a few weeks before the end of the season.
However, this number would soon drop to 70 due to the closure of Maidstone United at the beginning of the —93 season, and the Football League abandoned its expansion plan.
This meant that there would once again be 92 clubs in the highest four divisions of English football.
There were few major changes to the structure Football League in the 12 seasons which followed the breakaway that created the FA Premier League, perhaps the only notable changes being an expansion to 72 clubs from 70 for the —96 season after the Premier League was streamlined to 20 clubs from 22, and the introduction of a second relegation place to the Football Conference from the end of the —03 season.
However, following the formation of the Premier League, it became increasingly difficult for newly promoted clubs to establish themselves in the top flight.
Whereas newly promoted teams had once normally survived for at least a few seasons in the old First Division, it was now the norm for at least one newly promoted club to be relegated straight back from the Premier League to Division One.
In the nine seasons that followed the formation of the Premier League, at least one newly promoted club suffered this fate — and in the —98 season it happened to all three newly promoted teams.
There were exceptions, however; including Blackburn Rovers, who were promoted to the Premier League on its formation and were champions three years later, and Newcastle United, who were promoted in and finished in the top six for the next four seasons, finishing Premier League runners-up twice.
The trend of relegated clubs to win an instant promotion back to the top flight continued, however. In the 12 seasons following the formation of the Premier League, there were just three seasons where none of the newly relegated sides failed to win an instant return to the Premier League.
The widening gulf between the top two divisions of English football can largely be put down to the increased wealth of the Premier League clubs, and the wealth gained by these clubs — combined with parachute payments following relegation — has also made it easier for many of them to quickly win promotion back to the top flight.
In spite of the economic prosperity between and , many Football League clubs did run into financial problems during this time, although none of them were forced out of business.
Some of these clubs were faced with financial problems as a result of the lost revenue resulting from Premier League relegation and a failure to return to this level, as well as the collapse of ITV Digital in Just after the end of the —02 season, South London based Wimbledon were given permission to move to Milton Keynes , some 70 miles from their traditional home.
A relocation on this scale was unprecedented in English football, and led to the majority of the club's fans switching their support to a new fan-formed club, AFC Wimbledon , who joined the Combined Counties League.
The club's move to Milton Keynes was completed in September , when they became tenants of the National Hockey Stadium until a new permanent home was completed four years later, and the club's name changed to Milton Keynes Dons in June Coca-Cola replaced the Nationwide Building Society as title sponsor.
On 12 November , The Football League announced that it would be officially renamed the English Football League, with the abbreviation EFL to be emphasised, effective from the beginning of the —17 season.
The rebranding would include a new logo consisting of a circle composed of three swathes of 24 smaller circles each. The three swathes are to represent the three divisions and the 24 circles in each swathe making a total of 72 circles represent the 72 clubs in the league system.
Each club is to be presented with its own bespoke version of the logo. Since the League has accepted lucrative sponsorships for its main competition.
Below is a list of sponsors and the League's name under their sponsorship:. After the formation of the Premier League the newly slimmed-down football League 70 clubs until and 72 clubs since renamed its divisions to reflect the changes.
The financial health of its clubs had become perhaps the highest League priority due to the limited resources available. However, there were some promising signs for the future, as the League planned to announce new initiatives beginning with the —05 season, coinciding with the start of a new sponsorship agreement with Coca-Cola.
The League's cup competitions have had different sponsors. The current sponsor Sky Bet commissioned a suite of trophies for the league from silversmith Thomas Lyte.
The other major source of revenue is television. The s saw competition between terrestrial broadcasters for the rights to show League matches, but the arrival on the scene of satellite broadcaster British Sky Broadcasting Sky TV , eagerly searching for attractive programming to build its customer base and willing to pay huge sums, changed the picture entirely.
The League's top tier clubs had been agitating for several years to be able to keep more of the League's revenue for themselves, threatening to break away and form their own league if necessary.
In the threat was realised as the First Division clubs left to establish the FA Premier League and signed a contract for exclusive live coverage of their games with Sky TV.
The FA Premier League agreed to maintain the promotion and relegation of three clubs with The Football League, but The League was now in a far weaker position — without its best clubs and without the clout to negotiate high-revenue TV deals.
Sky will provide the majority of the coverage and the BBC broadcast 10 exclusively live matches from the Championship per season and the semi-finals and finals of the League Cup.
In May , it was announced that Talksport had secured exclusive national radio rights to the English Football League. Mark Clemmit continued to host the show as TradePoint came on board in the —14 season to be the title sponsor of the newly re-branded 'Football League Radio'.
The programme is now produced by digital production studio, Engage Sports Media. The Football League Board meets monthly and consists of two independent directors, three directors representing the Championship, two representing League One, and one representing League Two.
Below are listed the member clubs of The English Football League for the season. Since in total there have been Football League members.
Originally the bottom club s of the bottom division s had to apply for re-election each year, which was voted by all the other members. Walsall holds the record for the most reapplications for the Football League.
Former Football League clubs include all 20 of the current members of the Premier League along with various relegated, removed or defunct clubs. In the Football League absorbed 11 of the 12 clubs in the rival Football Alliance after it folded, meaning the League now had enough clubs to form another division.
The existing division was renamed the First Division and the new division was called the Second Division.
In the Football League admitted the clubs from the first division of the Southern League the Southern League continued with its remaining clubs and Grimsby Town , who had failed to be re-elected to the Second Division the season before and been replaced by Cardiff City of the Southern League.
The clubs were placed in the new Third Division:. After just one season under the old format, the League expanded again. This time it admitted a number of clubs from the north of England to balance things out, as the last expansion brought mainly clubs from the south.
Grimsby Town transferred to the new northern division. Both divisions ran in parallel, with clubs from both Third Divisions being promoted to the national Second Division at the end of each season:.
Following the breakaway of the 22 clubs in the First Division to form the FA Premier League, the Football League no longer included the top division in England, and the Football League champions were no longer the national champions of England.
In , the Football League renamed its divisions: At the end of the —06 season, Reading finished with a record points, beating the previous record of held by Sunderland.
Due to the breakaway of the Premier League in , winning the Football League title no longer makes a team the top tier champions of English football.
Includes Premier League titles. The Football League Play-offs are used as a means of determining the final promotion place from each of the league's three divisions.
This is a way of keeping the possibility of promotion open for more clubs towards the end of the season. The format was first introduced in , after the decision was made to reduce the top flight from 22 to 20 clubs over the next two seasons; initially, the play-offs involved the team finishing immediately above the relegation places in a given division and the three teams who finished immediately below the promotion places in the division below — essentially one team was fighting to keep their place in the higher division while the other three teams were attempting to take it from them.
In , this was changed—instead of teams from different divisions playing each other, the four teams below the automatic promotion places contested the play-offs.
The first season of this arrangement saw the final being contested in home and away legs. The four teams play-off in two semi-finals and a final, with the team winning the final being promoted.
Originally the semi-finals and the final were all two-legged home-and-away affairs, but from onwards the final is a one-off match. It is in this format that the play-offs continue today.
A proposal to have six teams rather than four competing for the final place was defeated at the league's AGM in From the —63 season it was decided to establish the category, which included as a prerequisite the "disengagement" of the teams from their local championships.
This detail is decisive and today it is generally accepted to consider this period as the official starting point of the second national championship class.
In its first steps almost every year its system was changed. Started with 4 groups of 14 groups which are the years —69 were reduced to two, then for six years —70 up to —75 the groups by three, whereas from to up to ; 83 were two, "North" and "South".
In the autumn of , the institution of the Pan-Hellenic Group was established, which was applied continuously until the —13 season.
From —11 season it was decided to rename the category to the Football League. At present, there are sixteen clubs that compete in the Football League, playing each other in a home and away series.
At the end of the season, the bottom four teams are relegated to the Gamma Ethniki. The top two teams gain automatic promotion.
Unlike the Super League , clubs in the Football League do not get relegated if the club fails to obtain a license. All teams in the Football League take part in the Greek Cup.
The following 16 clubs are competing in the Football League during the —19 season. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
