The Football Pyramid
A network of interconnected communities made up of professional and amateur leagues. The system has a
hierarchical format with promotion and relegation between leagues at different levels.
There are over 140 leagues, comprising over 480 divisions. The exact number of clubs varies from year to
year as teams join and leave leagues or fold altogether, but an estimated average of 15 clubs per division
implies that over 7,000 clubs are members of a league in the English football league system.
