Het Engels voetbalsysteem ook wel bekend als voetbalpiramide is een serie van competities die met elkaar te maken hebben. Het systeem heeft een hiërarchisch profiel waarin clubs promoveren en degraderen van de ene naar de andere competitie (League). Er bestaan meer dan 140 leagues en 480 divisies daarin. Het exacte nummer van clubs varieert elk jaar omdat er nieuwe clubs bijkomen en oude clubs verdwijnen. Gemiddeld zijn er toch minimaal 15 clubs per klasse wat op zo'n 7000 voetbalclubs uitkomt in het voetbalsysteem.

Het systeem[bewerken]

Onderstaande tabel toont de structuur van het systeem. Voor elke competitie de officiële naam en de sponsornaam en het aantal clubs dat erin speelt. Van niveau 2 tot en met 8 promoveert de kampioen automatisch naar de competitie die er net boven is. Onder dit niveau zijn er verschillende promotiemogelijkheden.
