How to use "Relegation" in context?

The relegation of a club from a top-flight league to a lower league is a common occurrence in sport. Relegation can be seen as a negative event, resulting in the deduction of points, losses of revenue, and usually the dismissal of the club's manager or head coach. A club may be relegated due to poor performance, financial difficulties, or arbitrary decisions by the governing body.

Relegation is not limited to professional sports. Amateur clubs may also be relegated, although this is much less common.
