The Tasmania North Premier League is the highest level of association football (soccer) competition in Northern Tasmania. Nationally, it is one grade lower (technically) than the A-League and is controlled by the Football Federation Tasmania (FFT), the state's governing body. Following the demise of the Tasmanian State League in 2000, the Southern and Northern Premier Leagues have become the state's highest level of Football competition. Instead of a statewide league, the top 4 teams from the Northern Premier League and the top 4 teams from the Southern Premier League, play off in a knock out final series to decide the state champion. This system came into to existence in 2009 and replaced the previous of system whereby the Northern and Southern Champions played off. The Northern Premier League Champion is decided in the typical fashion with the team finishing first being named League Champion.

There is no promotion or relegation in the Tasmanian Northern Premier League.
