The National Premier League is the top football league in Jamaica . Twelve teams currently compete in the league, which is privately sponsored. Past sponsors have been Wray and Nephews and Cash Plus Ltd

The competition is divided into four rounds. In the first three rounds each team play each other once; after the third round (i.e. after 33 games) the top six teams will be placed in one group and the bottom six in another. The top six teams will play against each other in the fourth and final round, with the top team becoming the champion.
