The FA Women's Premier League Northern Division is a league in the second-level in the women's football pyramid in England, along with the Southern divisions. These two divisions are below the National Division.

The league is played on a home and away basis, with each team playing each other twice, and points being awarded in the standard football format. The Northern champions get promoted to the National Premiership and are replaced by one of its bottom clubs, with relegation allocated along geographical lines. The bottom two clubs are relegated, also on a geographical basis, to the Northern and Midland Combination Leagues.

Northern Championship teams are eligible to play in the Women's League Cup as well as the FA Women's Cup.
