The Englishmarker rugby union league pyramid is topped by the Premiership.

Below the Premiership are National 1, National 2 and two National 3 leagues, South and North. Below National 3, the structure is split geographically into four regions: London and South East, Midlands, South West and North.

The London and South East and South West promotion candidates go into National 3 South, and the Midlands and North promotion candidates go into National 3 North. Each of the geographical regions has either two or four divisions (e.g. London 1, London 2 South/North, London 3 South-East/North-East/South-West/North-West, London 4 South-East..etc) which may again be geographically separated.

Below these regional leagues are county leagues (e.g. Sussex, Kent, Hampshire). The county leagues are the lowest levels in the English game.

However, the Midlands region has phased out county leagues and instead have regionalisation down to division 6.
