For the time being there is no promotion and relegation, with the current eight clubs having licenses for 2011 and 2012. The original plans (not sure if still current) are to expand the league to 12 clubs over a few years. Any promotion from the NL would not be based entirely (if at all) on league position, with financial stability and business plans being more important. I'd guess that any team gaining promotion to the WSL would probably sit out for almost a year, much as the founder members did between the end of 2009-10 NL season and the 2011 WSL.
