  Football League Third Division - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
From the 1992-93 to the 2003-04 season, the Football League Third Division was the third-highest division of The Football League and the fourth-highest division in the overall English football league system.
Before that it was the third division overall, but that ended with the creation of the FA Premier League prior to the start of the 1992-93 season.
The Third Division was originally formed in 1920 with the addition of Southern League clubs to the League, before becoming the Third Division South in 1921.

 Football League Third Division North - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Third Division North of The Football League was a level in English association football, which ran parallel to Third Division South from 1921 to 1958.
The Third Division South had been formed the previous season (as simply the Third Division) with 22 teams mostly from the Southern League.
In 1958 the two regional Third Divisions were merged together, to create the new Third Division and Fourth Division.

 Canadian Football League - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
After the admission of the expansion British Columbia Lions in 1954, the league remained stable with nine franchises from its 1958 inception until 1982 when the Montreal Alouettes folded and were subsequently replaced the same year by a new franchise named the Concordes.
In 2002 the league expanded back to nine teams with the Ottawa Renegades, which were suspended for the 2006 season after sustaining millions of dollars in losses in their four seasons.
Football has been gaining in popularity in Quebec with the recent success of the Alouettes, and Quebec university football teams now lead the country in attendance and on the field, with Laval University, the University of Montreal and Concordia University consistently in the top ten in the country.

 Football League
A second division was added by absorbing the rival Football Alliance in 1892, and by 1899 it had 36 member clubs.
The League was still largely northern- and midlands-based, so in 1920 virtually the entire First Division of the rival Southern League was absorbed as the FL's Third Division.
In 2004 the Football League decided to call its top division 'the Football League Championship' (which presumably they thought sounded better than the 'Premiership wannabes league'), thus 'elevating' the old Division 2 and 3 to 'new' Leagues 1 and 2.

Reading were elected to the Third Division of the Football League in 1920, and have spent the majority of the time since then in the third tier of the league, with occasional flirtations with the second and fourth tiers.
They have never played in the top tier of English professional football, although in season 1994/1995 their play-off defeat against Bolton made them the only side to finish second in the First/Second Division and not get promoted to the top level, due to the Premier League reducing its number of teams.
Their most recent promotion attempt failed in the season of 2002/2003 where Reading finished fourth in the league table, but were beaten by Wolves in the semi-final play-offs.
