Det engelske ligasystemet, også kalt «The football pyramid» er betegnelsen nivå 1–24 i engelsk fotball. Det vil altså ta 23 år å rykke opp til høyeste nivå (Premier League) hvis man spiller i Bristol Downs League Divisjon 4 (laveste nivå), og rykker opp hvert år.

Cuper/turneringer[rediger | rediger kilde]

Er et lag med i en liga på et visst nivå får man også delta i cuper, eller eliminasjonsturneringer.

Under nivå 11 blir pyramiden regional, og samtidig blir cupene også regionale. Lenger ned i ligasystemet er turneringene på fylke/distriktbasis, noen fylker/distrikter har også egne turneringer.

Selve systemet[rediger | rediger kilde]

Tabellen under viser ligasystemets nåværende struktur. For hver divisjon står det offisielle navnet, navn gitt fra sponsoren (som er forskjellig fra originalnavnet) og antall lag i hver divisjon. På nivå 1–8 rykker man direkte opp til nivået over den og rykker ned til den divisjonen rett under den. Under dette nivået bestemmes det individuelt av lokale forbund/fotballkretser. Lagene på nivå 1–4 er 100 % profesjonelle og er med i The Football League. Lagene på nivå 5–11 er medlem av National League System (NLS, også kalt non-league), og er under direkte jurisdiksjon av The Football Association. Toppnivået (nivå 5) av NLS i kjent som «Step 1» av FA, neste (nivå 6) som «step 2», osv. osv.
