2008 National Football League
Division 1 champions Derry (6thth win)

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.


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
