Football Conference

The Football Conference is a football league in England which consists of three divisions called Conference National, Conference North, and Conference South. Most Conference National clubs are fully professional, but some Conference National and most Conference North and Conference South clubs are semi-professional (see full listing of clubs below). Conference National is the fifth and lowest of the five nationwide football divisions in England, below the Premier League and the three divisions of the Football League, and is the top tier of the National League System of non-League football. Conference North and Conference South form the sixth tier of English football. The Football Conference consisted of only one division up until 2004, but expanded as part of an extensive restructuring of the National League System which took effect beginning with the 2004–05 season.

As part of a sponsorship deal with Blue Square Bet, Conference National is known as the Blue Square Bet Premier and the tiers below as Blue Square Bet North and Blue Square Bet South.

Famous quotes containing the words conference and/or football:

    For 350 years we have been taught that reading maketh a full man, conference a ready man and writing an exact man. Football’s place is to add a patina of character, a deference to the rules and a respect for authority.
    Walter Wellesley (Red)

    In football they measure forty-yard sprints. Nobody runs forty yards in basketball. Maybe you run the ninety-four feet of the court; then you stop, not on a dime, but on Miss Liberty’s torch. In football you run over somebody’s face.
    Donald Hall (b. 1928)
