Czech First League
The Czech First League, also known as the Fortuna Liga due to sponsorship, is a professional football league in Czech Republic. It is the country's main football rivalry and is located at the top of the Czech football league system. In 2020–21, the competition will be contested by 18 clubs, which will compete in a promotion and relegation structure similar to that of the Czech National Football League, with each team playing 34 games. Seasons usually run from August to May, with the majority of games taking place on Saturdays and Sundays and only a few on Fridays. The Czech Cup is open to all Fortuna liga teams.
Following the breakup of Czechoslovakia in 1993, the Czech football league was reorganized for the 1993–94 season, and the league became the successor of the Czechoslovak League. Since its inception, the Fortuna liga has featured thirty-five teams. Sparta Prague has won the title the most times of any Czech team, with a total of 12 titles. Slavia Prague (reigning champions), Slovan Liberec, Baník Ostrava, and Viktoria Plzen are among the other champions.
2.Recent format change
The modern competition format was used for the first time in the 2018–19 season. The teams are split into three categories during the regular season, which runs from July to April and entails each team playing every other team both at home and away. The championship division consists of the top six teams, with the first-placed team being crowned champions. The teams play only once against each other, with a limit of five extra matches. Earned points are added to the points earned during the regular season.
The Europa League play-offs are for the teams in 7th–10th place after 30 games. To decide who will compete in the Europa League, the best of them play against the fourth- or fifth-placed team in the championship pool (depending on the outcome of the Czech Cup and the Czech coefficient rankings between European football leagues). The 11th–16th-place teams follow the same pattern as the championship division. Teams in 15th and 14th place play relegation play-offs against teams in 2nd and 3rd place in the Czech National Football League, while teams in 15th and 14th place play relegation play-offs against teams in 2nd and 3rd place in the Czech National Football League.

Czech National Football League (Liga 2)
The Czech National Football League (Czech: Fotbalová národn liga, FNL) is the Czech Republic's second-tier competitive association football league, officially known as Fortuna národn liga due to sponsorship purposes. It was formerly known as the 2. liga or Druhá liga. Each season, the top two teams compete for promotion to the Czech First League. The I.NL (I.eská národn liga; First Czech National League) was formed after the end of the Czechoslovak Second League in 1977. Following the foundation of the Czech Republic as an independent state in 1993, the league was renamed simply II. liga (Second League).
2.Rules and format
The FNL is made up of 16 teams. Every club plays each other twice (once at home, once away) during the season, which runs from August to May or June with a winter break between November and February or March, and is given three points for a victory, one point for a draw, and zero points for a defeat. Total points, goal differential, and goals scored are used to rate teams. The top two teams in each division are promoted to the First League at the end of each season, provided they receive a license and satisfy league criteria, and are replaced by the bottom two teams in that division.
The league began with 16 teams in the 1993–94 season, before rising to 18 teams in the 1994–95 season. The league has mostly been played with 16 teams since 1995, but on two occasions a team did not complete all 30 rounds due to a scheduling conflict. st nad Labem could not fulfill their fixtures and their results were canceled in the 1997–98 Czech 2. Liga, and Bohemians' results were expunged despite only playing the first half of the season in the 2004–05 Czech 2. Liga.
