WebsiteMid Wales Football League

The Mid Wales Football League is a football league in Wales at tier 4 of the Welsh Football pyramid, run by the Central Wales Football Association. The league consists of two regionally based divisions - an East Division and a West Division. The league offers a promotion route to the Football Association of Wales administered Tier 3 Ardal Leagues. Relegation is possible to the relevant tier 5 level leagues in Aberystwyth, Ceredigion, Mid Wales South and Powys.

History

Until the end of the 2019–20 season the league sat at tier 3 and tier 4 of the pyramid, with the tier 3 Division One offering promotion to the Cymru North.

Changes from the 2020–21 season

For the 2020–21 season, the league will exist at tier 4 of the Welsh football league system and be called the Mid Wales League, with an east and a west division. The east division shall be known as the Mid Wales League East. The geographical area of the east division shall be a combination of those parts of the area presently served by the Montgomeryshire League and the Mid Wales South League. The west division shall be known as the Mid Wales League West. The geographical area of the west division shall be a combination of those parts of the area presently served by the Aberystwyth League and the Ceredigion League. Each division shall have no more than 16 clubs.[1]

Changes from the 2022–23 season

The Mid Wales Central League will from this season onwards be divided between north and south in a bid to increase membership after the inaugural western league ran with only seven clubs for the 2021–22 season.
