The football league was founded in 1888 by William McGregor and 12 founder clubs (Accrington, Aston Villa, Blackburn Rovers, Bolton Wanderers, Burnley, Derby County, Everton, Notts County, Preston North End, Stoke, West Bromwich Albion & Wolverhampton Wanderers) would compete in what is considered the first and oldest national professional football league in world football. Over time the league expanded with more clubs and more divisions peaking at 92 football league clubs across four divisions until the FA Premier League formed a break away championship in 1992 originally including 22 teams now housing the 20 best football clubs in England.
