What is a state league?

A state league is an amateur football league that is organized by a state football association. It is the highest level of amateur football in a state, and it is typically below the level of the professional leagues.

State leagues vary in size and structure from state to state. Some states have a single state league, while others have multiple leagues at different levels. The number of teams in a state league can also vary, from a few dozen teams to over 100 teams.

State league action

State leagues are typically divided into divisions, and teams are promoted and relegated between divisions based on their performance. The top division in a state league is often called the Premier League, and it is the most competitive division.

State leagues provide a competitive environment for amateur footballers to play at the highest level possible in their state. They also provide a pathway for players to progress to the professional leagues.
