As of the 2006–07 season, former Premier League members were in all three divisions of the Football League for the first time following the relegation of Swindon Town to League Two. At the end of the 2006–07 season, Bradford City were also relegated to Football League Two, whilst Swindon Town were promoted back to Football League One.

Crystal Palace have had four separate spells in the Premier League, with each never lasting more than one season. The club was relegated at the end of the 1992–93 season (the first of the Premier League). In 1993–94, they won the First Division Championship and played in the Premier League in 1994–95, when they were unlucky to finish fourth from bottom in the one season when the Premier League had four relegation places. In 1997–98, the club won the First Division Play-offs to again return, only to be relegated the following season bottom of the Premier League. Winning the play–offs again in 2003–04, they were again relegated back to the Championship the following season.

Both Luton Town and Notts County took part in the original negotiations in 1991 that led to the formation of the Premier League, and both resigned their membership of The Football League along with the other 20 clubs in the top flight during the 1991–92 season. However, both clubs were relegated that season and have not returned to the top flight since, with Notts County in Football League Two and Luton Town now having been relegated out of The Football League

Notes

  1. ^ Arsenal finished 5th in Division Two in the 1914–15 season, but the Football League was then suspended until 1919–20 due to WW1, After the War, Division One was expanded from 20 to 22 clubs and Arsenal was elected to the First Division for the 1919–20 season.
  2. ^ Wimbledon relocated from London to Milton Keynes in 2003, and renamed to become MK Dons a year later. Throughout their time in the Premier League, Wimbledon played their home games at Selhurst Park, the home of Crystal Palace.
