Blue Square Premier v. Conference National[edit]

It is Wikipedia's policy to refer to leagues by their unsponsored name. The Premier League page is not titled "Barclay's English Premier League", and the same precedent should be applied here. Che84 19:44, 7 June 2007 (UTC)

I agree with you, but 'Blue Square premier' should redirect to the Conference National page.

Or perhaps not? Division One became 'Coca Cola Championship', therefore is called 'The Championship'. However the change from 'Football Conference' to 'Blue Square Premier' should logically mean that the article is renamed 'Premier', clearly complete rubbish. The BBC which has similar advertising-free rules to Wikipedia - [1] has chosen to adopt the sponsored name. After all this league has historically changed its name with the sponsor - its an inherent part of the name, be it the Alliance Premier League, the Gola League, Vauxhall Conference or Blue Square Premier. As the article itself says: "Since 1984 it has been publicly known by the names of a succession of official title sponsors." The 'Conference' aspect no longer exists, in the same way we don't insisit on calling this article the 'Alliance Premier League' Me677 16:36, 3 July 2007 (UTC)
No, Division One became the Football League Championship, which was then sponsored by Coke to become the Coca-Cola Football League Championship. The unsponsored name of this league is still Conference National, and until that changes, it is completely ridiculous to even consider changing the article title. Che84 20:51, 3 July 2007 (UTC)
Shouldn't it be the "Conference Premier"? Malpass93 (talk) 17:46, 12 December 2007 (UTC)
There is a discussion on the Non-League Matters forum whether the top division of the Conference should be Conference National or Conference Premier. See http://nonleaguematters.co.uk/forum/gforum.cgi?post=271464#271464 I've come round to the point of view that it should be Conference Premier. Rainjar (talk) 15:41, 16 September 2010 (UTC)

The unsponsored name of this league is Blue Square Premier —Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.3.235.6 (talk) 20:36, 31 August 2008 (UTC)

That is not correct, as Blue Square Bet is the sponsor. Rainjar (talk)

Fully professional or not?[edit]

As this league falls within the remit of the Wiki football project and it is sometimes mentioned about this leagues professional status on there - could someone who knows answer this (I have tried to find out by looking at clubs articles and by looking briefly at the official website for the league) What is the status of the league (and by league I mean the Confernce National AKA Blue Square Premier)? How many clubs are fully professional and which (if any) are still semi-professional? Thank you ♦Tangerines BFC ♦·Talk 01:14, 9 July 2007 (UTC)

I'm not 100% certain, but I believe all clubs in the league are professional, but the league does not require them to be, so the league isn't considered fully professional. Che84 04:08, 9 July 2007 (UTC)
There's a few part-timers including: Burton Albion, Northwich Victoria which just makes it bizarre that they're playing with Oxford United who can get 11,000 to matches. I'd consider Wikipedia's definition that the Conference can't have full player profiles, etc, because it isn't (and with promotion of 'lucky' teams from the leagues below, will never be) 'professional' completely outdated and bizarre. Me677 10:43, 9 July 2007 (UTC)

So what is the typical salary for players in the Conference? How large is the gulf between the Conference and Football League Two? Ffda (talk) 01:00, 15 January 2008 (UTC)

Table at bottom of page[edit]

The table at the bottom of the page stretches way beyond the normal confines of the page and result in a lot of empty sapce in the table as well as a horizontal scroll bar. I am unsure as to how to fix this and so ask a more experienced editor to do it. Tetzcatlipoca 16:11, 18 August 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Football Conference.png[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Football Conference.png is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Conference NationalConference Premier – The official Football Conference website states that the unsponsored name of this division is Conference Premier, not Conference National. Additionally it is the name used by all major news outlets during this period when the competition is not sponsored by anyone. In contrast "Conference National" gets no hits in Google News at all.

New Sponsor[edit]

Now the league is being sponsored by Vanarama, when will you start using their logo instead of Skrill's now obsolete one? Quizman1967 (talk) 17:30, 8 August 2014 (UTC)
