The Bedistan Football League consists of the second through sixth levels of domestic football (soccer) competition in the Grand Dominion of Bedistan.


The BFL consists in part of four divisions of twenty clubs each, named, appropriately enough, the First, Second, Third, and Fourth Divisions. League play consists of a total of 38 matches for each club in the top four divisions and 26 in the Conferences, as they play each other club twice, once at home and once away. Final league standings are determined first by points (three per win and one per draw), then by goal difference (goals conceded subtracted from goals scored), and then by goals scored. So far there has never been a situation where a tie still resulted after all three criteria were taken into account.

Promotion and relegation in the Bedistan Football League works as follows:

Division Promoted Relegated
First Division Top 3 clubs
(to Bedistan Premier League)
Bottom 3 clubs
Second Division Top 3 clubs Bottom 3 clubs
Third Division Top 3 clubs Bottom 3 clubs
Fourth Division Top 3 clubs Bottom 4 clubs
(2 each to Conference North and South)
Conference North/South Top 2 clubs from each Bottom 2 clubs from each
(to Western, Northern, Heartland, and Deep South Leagues)


The BFL in its current form was formed at the beginning of 2065, after the BPL chose to break ties with the Bedistan Football Association because they did not like the Association's mandates regarding who could or could not play in the BPL. The BFA still recognizes the BPL as an official competition, though. In 2075, the Conference North and South were added beneath the Fourth Division. In 2077, relegation from and promotion to the Conferences was added. Prior to the 2082 season, the Conferences lost their geographical distinctions and were renamed simply Conference A and Conference B. In 2088, they were again restored to their original function as Conference North and South, with clubs redistributed between the two as appropriate.
