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 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.
