The English Football League One, commonly known as League One, is the third tier of professional football in England. Established in 2004 following the rebranding of the Football League, it sits below the Premier League and the Championship in the English football league system.

League One comprises 24 teams, each playing 46 games during the season, which typically runs from August to May. The teams compete for promotion to the Championship, with the top two teams and the winner of the play-offs between the teams finishing third to sixth being promoted. Conversely, the bottom four teams are relegated to League Two.

The league has been a breeding ground for future stars and has seen many teams bounce back to the higher tiers after a period of financial or sporting difficulty. It has also been a platform for smaller clubs to establish themselves in the professional game. Clubs such as Sheffield United, Leeds United, and Leicester City have all competed in League One before achieving success at higher levels.

The competition is known for its unpredictability and competitiveness, with the promotion and relegation battles often going down to the final day of the season. It is also renowned for its commitment to developing homegrown talent, with many clubs operating successful youth academies.

Despite being the third tier, League One attracts significant interest both domestically and internationally. The league has a number of broadcast partners, with games regularly shown live on television in the UK and around the world. The league also has a strong digital presence, with all clubs offering live streaming of games.

The current champions of League One are Hull City, who secured promotion to the Championship in the 2020-2021 season. The league's all-time leading goal scorer is Billy Sharp, who scored 87 goals during his time with several clubs in the division.

In summary, League One is a vital part of the English football pyramid, providing competitive, exciting football and playing a key role in the development of players and clubs. It is a league that encapsulates the passion, drama, and unpredictability that makes football in England so compelling.
