Relegation is when a team loses its position in a particular league division and is moved to a lower one. For example a team that does badly in the season will end up being relegated to an easier league, because they will have a low number of points at the end of the season. Depending on the league structure, several teams will get relegated each year, and other teams that have finished at the top of their division will be promoted. So, in a typical example, the three bottom teams in Division 1 might be relegated to Division 2 and the three top teams in Division 2 will be promoted to Division 1. So each division will retain the same amount of teams. There may be lots of divisions, so teams could be relegated between Division 2 and Division 3 and so on. Sometimes teams may be automatically promoted if they finish top, and teams that are close to the top may have a play-off to get other places for promotion. There are different systems.
It means that you have not acquired sufficient points to remain in the division and subsequently are sent down one. Only so many teams go down, so the amount of points you acquire is always in relation to the other teams in the league.
The soccer term relegated means to be demoted or to go down a division.
