Football around the world

From Academic Kids

Most European countries have two principal 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 competitions often mix elements of both types. For overviews of women's football see Women's football around the world.
