League One is the third tier of English football, established in 2004. From 1992 to 2004, the league was known as the Second Division, and before the creation of the Premier League, the competition was called the English Third Division.
In League One, 24 clubs compete and face each other twice - at home and away. At the end of each season, the top two clubs, along with the winner of the playoffs, which are played between the clubs finished in 3-6 position, qualify for the Championship - the second tier of English football. The last 4 teams in the league are relegated to League 2. The first three clubs from League 2 take their place, as well as the playoffs winner.
For the 2023/24 season, League One will offer its fans a battle for promotion among big English clubs with great history and traditions, such as Bolton Wanderers, Portsmouth, Derby County, Blackpool and Charlton. Most of these teams have ambitions to go back under the lights of the Championship and will fight till the end for the promotion places. It’s worth knowing that this league always offers competitive games with surprising results. As a trait of English football, it is common to see the league teams in the bottom to win against the favourites and top teams in the division.
