2013–14 Luxembourg National Division

The National Division (Luxembourgish: Nationaldivisioun, French: Division Nationale, German: Nationaldivision) is the highest football league in Luxembourg. Until 2011, it was known as the BGL Ligue, after the Luxembourg Football Federation managed to seal a sponsorship deal with Fortis. Before 2006, it contained twelve teams, but it expanded to fourteen for the 2006–07 season, and it has maintained this number since. The current champions are Fola Esch.

The competition was first held in 1910, and has been held every year since, with the exceptions of 1913 and four seasons during the Second World War. The competition was called Championnat Luxembourgeois until 1913–14. From 1914–15 until 1931–32, the title was the Premiere Division. It was called Division d'Honneur from 1932–33 to 1956–57. Since the 1957–58 season, the competition has been called the Division Nationale.
