Premier League

The Hong Kong Premier League is the top-tier division of local football and was inaugurated in 2014/15. It replaced the 1st Division, which has now become the second tier of local football. The Hong Kong Premier League is a fully professional league and the number of participating teams fluctuates between 9 and 11. The winners of the league and the FA Cup will qualify for the Asian Champions League qualifiers or AFC Cup group stages (depending on the current AFC ranking), while the bottom-ranked team will be relegated to the 1st Division. The season play-off, which determined the second qualifying spot for AFC tournaments, was eliminated after the 2016/17 season. Since 2017/18 the second spot for AFC competitions will be given to the winners of the FA Cup. In case they are the same as the league champions, the spot goes to the league runners-up.

Currently there are three domestic cups in addition to the league: Senior Shield (knock-out), FA Cup (knock-out), and Sapling Cup (group stages and finals).
