The new title, which will come into use at the conclusion of the current season and ahead of the 2016/17 campaign, will be shortened to EFL for everyday use across the game.
The EFL name will be accompanied by a new logo featuring a dynamic circular arrangement of 72 balls in three swathes of 24, representing each of the League’s member clubs and the respective divisions they play in.
The new logo is just the fourth in the 127 year history of the world’s original league football competition and, for the first time, each club will be presented with its own bespoke version in its individual playing colours, ahead of the new season.
