Division 1 champions Derry

The 2008 National Football League was the Gaelic football league contested by 33 GAA counties' football teams, 32 from Ireland and one (London) from England.

Format[edit]

The 2008 format of the National Football League is a new system consisting of four separate divisions. There are eight teams in the top three divisions and nine in Division Four. Placings are decided by:

  1. Points (2 for a win, 1 for a draw, 0 for a loss)
  2. Score difference
  3. Total scored
  4. Head-to-head result between tied teams

The top two in each division play a final match to decide the division champions. The top two in divisions 2, 3 and 4 are promoted, whilst the bottom two in 1, 2 and 3 are relegated. Promotion/relegation playoffs take place as follows:

  • 6th Div 1 vs. 3rd Div 2
  • 6th Div 2 vs. 3rd Div 3
  • 6th Div 3 vs. 3rd Div 4
