English Football League

The first season of The Football League kicked off on 8th September 1888 with 12 member clubs, each club playing the others home and away. Preston North End went on to claim the first Football League Championship (without losing a game) and the FA Cup (without conceding a goal). A second division was added in 1892, and a third division in 1920. In 1921 the league was expanded again, with the addition of Division Three (North). The existing third division became Division Three (South). These two regional divisions were reformed in 1958 as Division Three and Division Four. When the FA Premier League was formed in 1992 (being the former Division One), The Football League shrank from four divisions to three. In 2004 the First Division became the League Championship, Division Two became League One, and Division Three became League Two. The next rebranding came in 2016, when The Football League became the English Football League, League One became EFL League One etc.
