a major announcement has been issued by the Conference however it has an embargo time on being released. It will be announced first by BT Sports at 12:25 and will appear here shortly afterwards! What are you expecting to see?

It is pretty cool though. Division 5 football on TV. shame they couldn't keep the Conference name after making such a big deal about bringing it back.

Football Conference to be renamed as National League
The Football Conference, comprising the fifth and sixth tiers of English football, is to be renamed as the National League from next season.
The competition has also announced a new logo and a renewed three-year TV broadcasting deal with BT Sport.
Incoming National League chairman Brian Barwick said the new branding would "offer much to our existing partners whilst opening up new opportunities".
Current sponsors Vanarama will continue to lend their name to the competition.
Under the changes the fifth tier of English football, currently the Conference Premier, will officially become the Vanarama National League.
The two divisions of the sixth tier, currently the Conference North and South, will be renamed the Vanarama National League North and the Vanarama National League South.
The League will also have its own TV channel, NLTV, which will focus exclusively on the 68 member clubs across the three divisions.
Outgoing Conference chairman Brian Lee said: "Our announcement around the name change and broadcasting channel excites me and I sincerely hope it excites the football world."

Why did they change the name away from the Conference? Did they give a reason for the change?

Don't think they gave a reason why for the name change - just part of rebranding I presume

If we are still in this league next season and we win it,

We will be the National Champions,

Does that qualify us for Europe ?

Absolute nonsense. Why change the name at all? In fact, let's do away with the championship, league 1 & 2 etc and revert to Division1,2,3 and Conference.

Yes Brian, I imagine L'Equipe and Gazetta dello Sport will be covering it tomorrow.
