English Football League (EFL) was formed in 1888 by its twelve founder members and is the world's original league football competition. The EFL is the template used by leagues the world over. The EFL is the largest single body of professional Clubs in European football and is responsible for administering and regulating the EFL, the Carabao Cup and the Papa John’s Trophy, as well as reserve and youth football. The EFL's 72 member clubs are grouped into three divisions: the EFL Championship, EFL League One, and EFL League Two
There are 24 clubs in the EFL League Two. Each season, clubs play each of the other teams twice (once at home, once away). Clubs are awarded three points for a win, one for a draw and no points for a loss. Over the season, these points are tallied, and a league table is constructed. At the end of each season the top three teams, together with the winner of the play-offs between the teams which finished in the fourth to seventh positions, are promoted to EFL League One and are replaced by the four teams that finished at the bottom of that division. Similarly, the two teams that finished at the bottom of League Two are relegated to the National League and are replaced by the team that finished first and the team that won the second through seventh place play-off in that division. Final league position is determined, in order, by points obtained, goal difference, goals scored, a mini-league of the results between two or more teams ranked using the previous three criteria, and finally a series of one or more play-off matches. There is a mandatory wage cap in this division that limits spending on players' wages.
