The Bosnia and Herzegovina women's football championship (Bosnian: Ženska nogometna liga BiH) is the top level women's football league of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Since 2013 the league is united, before it was played in two separate groups, one being the Republika Sprska women's football championship, with the champion being decided in a play-off group.[1]

The winner of the play-off qualifyies for a spot in the UEFA Women's Champions League.

The league draws basically no media attention in Bosnia and Herzegovina. There is very low funding for the clubs that often don't even have training fields.[2]

History[edit]

Until 2013 the league was divided into the NFSBiH league and the league of the Republic of Srpska. The best two teams of the NFSBiH league qualified for a play-off in which the champion of the Republika Sprska women's football championship joined. The venue for the play-off was decided beforehand and it was played as three-team group.

Format[edit]

The teams play a double round robin after which the two best-placed teams advance to 3 team play-off group with the best placed club from Republika Srpska.

2012–13 Teams[edit]

The 2012–13 season is played by the following six teams.[3]
