From 1920 to 2013, several new teams joined the National Football League (NFL)—named the American Professional Football Association (APFA) in 1920–1921—while others cancelled or consolidated their operations for various reasons. In addition to forming divisions, conferences, and divisions within conferences in different years, the league completed its mergers with the All-America Football Conference (AAFC) in 1950 and American Football League (AFL) in 1970. During the latter season, the NFL consisted of 26 franchises with 13 each in the American Football Conference (AFC) and National Football Conference (NFC). These conferences had five teams in their Eastern Division (ED) and four each in the Central and Western Division (CD and WD).
