Odds on the National League promotion 2018/19
Promotion from National League 2018/19
The National League is the top division of the National League in English football. It is the highest level of the National League System and fifth-tier of the overall English football league system. The total number of teams in the National League is 24. While all of the clubs in the top four divisions of English football are full-time professionals, the National League has a mixture of full-time and semi-professional clubs. The clubs involved want promotion so that they can play league football and every season two clubs get that chance. The winning team and the winner of the play-off are the two clubs that earn the right to promote every season. The promoted clubs play in the English Football League 2 in the following season.
Last season, Macclesfield Town and Tranmere Rovers were promoted to the League 2 and will not be involved in the National League 2018/19. The relegated clubs from the League 2 last season, Chesterfield and Barnet will play in the National League in the upcoming season and will fight to get back to the Football League.
The clubs that are favorites to promote to the League 2 in the upcoming season:
Salford City won the National League North last season and will be playing in the National League in 2018/2019. They were in tremendous form last season and if they can hold on to it, then it could be enough for them to finish the season at the top of the table. They are currently favorites to promote to the League 2 in the upcoming season.
Chesterfield had a horrible season in the League 2 last season. They finished at the bottom of the table and were relegated to the National League. However, they could change their fate this season by promoting to the League 2 again. They are one of the top contenders for promotion.
Fylde had a good last season and even qualified for the play-off for promotion but failed to capitalize and promote. But it is strongly predicted by many that they will get the promotion in the upcoming season. They could finally be playing in the Football League soon.
Next season could also be Wrexham’s year as they are one of the top favorites to promote to the League 2 in the 2018/19 season. Wrexham is one of the oldest clubs in the National League with a lot of history. They could finally play in the League 2 soon.
Barnet faced demotion last season by the margin of Goal Difference. But could come back stronger next season and promote back to the League 2.
