English Football League System
The ENGLISH FOOTBALL LEAGUE SYSTEM, also known as the FOOTBALL PYRAMID, is a series of interconnected leagues for men's association football clubs in England
England
, with six teams from Wales
Wales
and one from Guernsey
Guernsey
also competing. The system has a hierarchical format with promotion and relegation between leagues at different levels, allowing even the smallest club the theoretical possibility of ultimately rising to the very top of the system, although in practice it would take a team at the bottom levels at least two decades of consistently finishing at or near the top of each successive league to reach the top level, and even then additional restrictions, particularly in regard to stadium facilities, would then come into effect at the highest levels that could prevent a club from being allowed access to the top levels. There are more than 140 individual leagues, containing more than 480 divisions

Mixed Hockey
MIXED HOCKEY is collective name for the sport of field hockey that comprises both men and women on one team. A team will contain eleven players: five will be male, five are female and the goalkeeper can be either sex. Mixed hockey is not associated with ice hockey or street hockey and is played on astroturf or grass. Many countries have extensive club competitions for junior and senior players. Despite the large number of participants—hockey is thought to be the field team sport with the second-largest number of participants worldwide (the first being football )—club hockey is not a large spectator sport and few players play as full-time professionals. Hockey is a sport played internationally by both males and females, however in some countries, such as the United States, it is predominantly played by females. The England Hockey Board (EHB) is the National Governing Body for hockey in England
