The Cheshire Association Football League is a football competition based in Cheshire, England, which until 2007 was known as the Mid-Cheshire Association Football League. It has three divisions: Divisions One and Two, and a Reserve Division. Founded in 1948, only one club Knutsford) have maintained continuous membership since the formation of the league.[1] Two other founder members have only recently left the league - Whitchurch Alport resigned from the league in 2012 to join the Mercian Regional League and Barnton left in the summer of 2014 to join the North west Counties League's Division One.[2]

Division One sits at step 7 (or level 11) of the National League System, and is a feeder to the North West Counties League Division One. The Cheshire League is fed by the Crewe & District League and the Warrington & District League.

Due to a sponsorship agreement, for the 2007–08 season the official name of the league was the Cheshire Building Society Cheshire Football League. Garswood United won the Division One Championship in 2013–14, while the Division Two title was won by Poynton.
