Cricket - County Championship

The title of County champions of England and Wales was not unanimously awarded until 1890. IN the previous 64 years, several competing systems were brought forward to decide the honour, but it was not until December 1889 that the competition called the County Championship was officially inaugurated. That first season was contested by eight sides: Gloucestershire, Kent, Lancashire, Middlesex, Nottinghamshire, Surrey, Sussex and Yorkshire. The remaining counties joined in the following years:
Somerset (1891), Derbyshire, Essex, Hampshire, Leicestershire, Warwickshire (1895), Worcestershire (1899), Northamptonshire (1905), Glamorgan (1921) and Durham (1992). The Champions' pennant was first awarded in 1951 and a trophy in 1973.

From 2000, the 18 counties have been split into two divisions each season, with promotion and relegation between the leagues.
