The 2012 County Championship season, known as the LV= County Championship for sponsorship reasons,[1] was the 113th cricket County Championship season. Warwickshire won their seventh County Championship title. It was contested through two divisions: Division One and Division Two. Each team plays all the others in their division both home and away.
