Association football around the world


Association football around the world

Most European countries have two principal association football competitions: a more prestigious league which is typically a double round-robin tournament restricted to the elite clubs, and a cup which is a single-elimination tournament open to both the elite and lesser clubs. In Latin America, leagues are often organised as multi-stage tournaments, or separate Apertura and Clausura stages. For overviews of women's football see "Women's football around the world".
