The "League" was founded in 1905 by a group of amateur football clubs in the United Kingdom. The original name of the league was the "Amateur Football Association League", but it was renamed to the "League" in 1920.
The "League" has been played at a number of different levels over the years. In the early days, the league was the highest level of amateur football in the country. However, the introduction of the professional Football League in 1888 saw the "League" become the second tier of amateur football.
The "League" has been reorganized several times over the years. In 1977, the league was split into two divisions, with the top division becoming the "Premier Division" and the bottom division becoming the "Division One". In 2004, the league was further reorganized, with the Premier Division becoming the "National League" and the Division One becoming the "Regional League".
The "League" is currently structured into two divisions, the National League and the Regional League. The National League consists of 12 teams, while the Regional League consists of 12 teams. The teams play each other twice, once at home and once away, for a total of 22 games each season.

The top two teams in the Regional League at the end of the season are promoted to the National League, while the bottom two teams are relegated to lower leagues.
