Does anyone know why league 1 relegation, league 2 promotion or old div 2/3 have 4 up 4 down compared to 3 up 3 down in prem to championship and championship to league 1??

Surely it would make more sense if all leagues were 3 up 3 down.. looks like conference will get 3 up soon too

I would think it stems from the time when those divsions (3 and 4) had 24 teams in, wheeras Division 1 and Divison 2 had only 22 teams.

Wouldnt it make sense to change it to 3 up and 3 down? Seen as the old division 2 (championship) has 24 teams in now. Bit harsh on struggling teams in league 1 but on the other hand good for league 2. Just think 4 is too much
