First talks of the league began in 2011. As a try-out of cooperation in 2011 the BeNe Super Cup was established. The KBVB/URBSFA approved the league on 10 December 2011. The KNVB approved the league on 13 February 2012.
The UEFA then eventually gave the green light for the 2012–13 season on 23 March 2012 after its meeting of its Executive Committee in Istanbul.
The League is divided in two stages. In the first stage eight Dutch and eight Belgian teams will play a national League qualifying for the second stage. The second stage is divided in the Women's BeNe League A & B.
The eight Dutch and eight Belgian teams will play a national double round-robin, thus each team playing 14 matches. The number 1 until 4 qualify for the BeNe League A, the numbers 5 until 8 qualify for the BeNe League B.
The league consists of two Leagues (A & B) in which 16 teams take part. The top four teams of each country will advance to the BeNe League A, with the bottom four teams playing the BeNe League B. Both groups then will play another double round-robin for 14 additional matches. After that the winning team in League A is the BeNe League champion. The highest placed Belgian and Dutch team will qualify to the UEFA Women's Champions League. The lowest Belgium team will relegate to the Second Division.
