Football League and Betting

The Football League that today known as The English Football League (EFL) was arranged in 1888. It remained the top-level football league until the formation of the Premier League by a range of the best clubs in 1992. Betting on different events in the ELF is extremely popular today and it is also easily accessible thanks to lots of bookmakers operating online.

EFL’s Leagues

EFL includes seventy-two football clubs with professional English and Welsh players. The clubs are divided into the following three divisions:

  • Championship (twenty-four clubs);
  • League One (twenty-four clubs);
  • League Two (twenty-four clubs).

The Championship

The Championship is the EFL’s highest division, where the winning clubs receive the trophy and get the right to join the Premier League, which is the top level of the football pyramid. The lowest teams join League One.

League One

It is the next division and the third level in the UK’s football league system. Each club plays with every other club two times (home and away). Winners are awarded three points; one point is given for a draw, and a loss results in zero points.

League Two

It is the lowest division of the EFL. It also has 24 clubs, and points are given in the same way as in League One. The winners are promoted to the next level, League One, and those that have lost in League Two join the National League.
