London 1 South is an English level 6 Rugby Union regional league for clubs in south London and the south east of England.[1] The 14 teams play home and away matches from September through to April. The top team in the league by the end of season wins promotion straight up to National 3 London & South East while the league runner up plays a playoff against the runner up of London 1 North to see who joins them. Relegated teams tend to drop to either London 2 South East or London 2 South West depending on where they are located.

Green backgrounds are promotion places.
  1. ^ The creation of a new division 4 for the next season in the London league would lead to a restructure of the whole league including a downsizing of this division from 17 teams to 12 resulting in much more relegation spots than usual.
  2. ^ The division would be renamed London Division 1 South for the next season and along with the whole national restructure of the league system by the RFU lead to mass changes at all levels.
