English Football League: League competition featuring professional association football clubs from England and Wales
The English Football League (EFL) is a league competition featuring professional association football clubs from England and Wales. Founded in 1888 as the Football League, the league is the oldest such competition in world football. It was the top-level football league in England from its foundation until 1992, when the top 22 clubs split away to form the Premier League. In the seasons from 1995 the league was reduced to 20 teams.
