The National League, currently named the Vanarama National League for sponsorship reasons, is the top division of the National League in English football. It is the highest level of the National League System and fifth-highest of the overall English football league system. While all of the clubs in the top four divisions of English football are full-time professional, the National League has a mixture of full-time and semi-professional clubs. The National League is the lowest division in the English football pyramid organised on a nationwide basis. Formerly the Conference National, the league was renamed the National League from the 2015–16 season.
At present (2017–18 season), Wrexham hold the longest tenure in the National League, last being out of the division in the 2007-08 season when they were relegated from League Two.Close
