Organisation of Football in Scotland

The organisation of football in Scotland is based on a hierarchical league system, allowing clubs to ascend or descend based on their performance. This structure is divided into several tiers, ranging from professional to semi-professional, down to amateur football.

At the top of the hierarchy is the Scottish Premiership, which is the highest level of Scottish football. It comprises 12 professional clubs vying for the title of Scottish champions. The bottom two teams in the standings at the end of the season are relegated to the Scottish Championship, which also includes 10 clubs. The top two teams from this division are promoted to the Premiership, while the bottom team is relegated to the Scottish League One.

The Scottish League One, the third tier, hosts 10 teams, predominantly semi-professional. The top team is promoted to the Championship, and the bottom team is relegated to the Scottish League Two. This tier also includes 10 clubs, operating on the same principle of promotion and relegation with the League One and the Highland Football League and the Lowland Football League.

The Highland Football League and Lowland Football League, the fifth tier of Scottish football, are organised into two regional groups. They include amateur clubs as well as reserve teams from professional outfits. Beyond these leagues, the system continues with regional and county divisions, highlighting the depth and richness of Scottish football at all levels of competition.

From the sixth to the fifteenth division, Scottish football is organised by regional and county leagues, which include the East of Scotland Football League, the South of Scotland Football League, the West of Scotland Football League, and other local leagues. These divisions provide amateur clubs with the opportunity to progress within the Scottish league system.
