The need for a more competitive regular football league competition continues to emerge. Finally, in 1888, a new competition was formed called the Football League. The competition was first formed by the then director of Aston Villa, William McGregor. The initial members of the Football League consisted of 12 clubs, namely Blackburn Rovers, Burnley, Bolton Wanderers, Accrington, Everton, Preston North End, Aston Villa, Derby County, Notts County, Stoke City, West Bromwich Albion, and Wolverhampton Wanderers.
In the first season of the Football League, Preston North End successfully became the first champion in the history of the English League. Several other clubs that won in the early days of the Premier League competition included Aston Villa, Everton, Sunderland, and Sheffield United. Initially, the Football League only contained one division, but after many other clubs signed up, the Football League began to implement a two-division system, namely the First Division and the Second Division.
