28 clubs will compete in the FA Tesco Women's Premier League next season after the constitution was confirmed at the league's AGM.
With eight of last season's clubs departing to form the inaugural Super League, the National Division will consist of eight clubs while the Northern and Southern Divisions will consist of ten clubs each.
The six remaining National Division clubs stay in the top flight and are joined by the top two from the Southern Division, Barnet and Reading.
The bottom two teams in the National Division will be relegated and the top two in the Northern and Southern Divisions promoted, which will help bring the membership up to 30 for the 2011-12 season, with 10 teams in each division.
There will be a play-off system introduced for promotion and relegation into the league with the team finishing second from bottom in the Northern and Southern Divisions competing against the winners of separate play-offs between the relative runners-up in the Combination Leagues.
A change has also been made to the format of the Premier League Cup for the new campaign, to help the teams with more fixtures. The clubs will be drawn in seven groups of four teams, who will play each other once. The top two placed teams in each group, plus the best two third placed teams, will progress to the knockout stages.
