Palestine League
Season 1946-47
Champions Maccabi Tel Aviv
4th title

The 1946-47 Palestine League was the tenth season of league football in the British Mandate for Palestine. The defending champions were Hapoel Tel Aviv and the championship was won by Maccabi Tel Aviv.

Hapoel Rehovot and Hapoel Herzliya were both relegated, whilst Hakoah Tel Aviv withdrew from the prior to the season start and played in the second tier instead.

The following season was abandoned shortly after it began due to outbreak of the 1947–48 Civil War, meaning the 1946-47 season was the last completed season of the Palestine League, as following the Israeli Declaration of Independence, it was succeeded by the Israeli League. The top 12 clubs from the 1946–47 season kept their status in the new Israeli League, with the addition of promoted clubs Hapoel HaTzafon Tel Aviv and Maccabi Haifa.
