The Northern Premier League to run new eighth division at Step 4
The Northern Premier League has been successful in its bid to run the new eighth division at Step 4 from the 2020/21 season.
The NPL currently runs one Step 3 division and two at Step 4 in the Non-League pyramid.
The FA are working towards a ‘pure’ pyramid of 1-2-4-8-16 and revealed the second phase of their changes exclusively to The NLP a fortnight ago, which can be read here.
Further details of the new Step 4 division will be revealed in due course, but the league will run alongside the two existing NPL East and West Divisions.
NPL chairman, Mark Harris, said: “Everyone at the NPL is thrilled to have been successful with this bid and it is testament to the quality and professionalism that the League displays both from an administration point of view and by member clubs.
“We do our utmost to support our member clubs to reach the highest standards and we look forward to welcoming another division’s worth in to our set up to enable us to continue improving the NPL as a whole.”
