FA Women's Premier League

FA Women's Premier League

The FA Women's Premier League is the major women's football competition in England. It has been run by The Football Association since the 1992-93 season. 36 teams compete in the three divisions of the Women's Premier League.

The competition is run in a pyramid format, with the FA Women's Premier League National Division at the top, and the Northern and Southern divisions running on an equal basis underneath the National Division. The winners of these leagues each season are promoted to the National Division. The terms Women's Premiership and Ladies Premiership are generally used for the National Division only.

Underneath the top flight leagues, are four Combination leagues - the South West, South East, Midland and Northern Combinations.
