Qatar's football league system is a series of interconnected leagues for association football clubs in Qatar and consists of two divisions which are overseen by the Qatar Football Association (QFA). The Qatar Stars League, previously known as the Q-League, is the top division and currently features 12 teams, whereas the Qatari Second Division, also known as Qatargas League, features a total of 8 teams.

Amateur leagues and tournaments are supervised and organized by the Subordinate Leagues Committee at QFA. These include the Qatar Amateur League, School League, University League and Asian Community Football Tournament.[1]
