The Football Alliance was considered by many as the Second Division of the Football League. That reputation was confirmed when 11 of its 12 members joined the Football League when that competition expanded its membership at the end of the 1891/92 season with the formation of Division 2.

The new First Division increased its membership by 2 clubs. Of the bottom 4 in 1891/92 seeking re-election West Bromwich Albion were not required to seek re-election as they were the FA Cup holders but the other 3 were pitched against those seeking election. Voting -

Newcastle East End (now Newcastle United) and the combined Middlesbrough club declined invitations to join the new Division 2. The 12 clubs who did accept invitations to become founder members of the new Division were Ardwick (now Manchester City), Bootle, Burton Swifts, Burslem Port Vale (Port Vale), Crewe Alexandra, Darwen (who had not been re-elected to Division 1), Grimsby Town, Lincoln City, Northwich Victoria, Sheffield United, Small Heath (Birmingham City), Walsall Town Swifts (Walsall).

The only Football Alliance club not to join the League - Birmingham St George's - folded due to financial problems and shorn of its membership the Football Alliance itself disbanded.
