there are 27 tiers in english football. :|

Premier League
Championship
League One
League Two
National League
National League South
Southern League
Southern League South
SE Counties League
Kent League Premier
Kent League One
Kent League Two West
Kent League 3 West

After that, there are other leagues but they are non feeding leagues and would be debatable as to what level they come in at. eg. West Kent Sunday league is not on the "pyramid) but top division would be about Kent League One, a lot of players play in both.
West Adelaide Soccer Club president Alex Alexandrou said the club was still in a position to be playing and training at the new ground either by the end of the 2015 season or in 2016.
