The Mercian Regional Football League is an English association football league based in the county of Shropshire. It was formed for the 2012-13 season, with all member clubs of the dissolved Shropshire County Premier Football League (except for Newport Town who were promoted) transferring membership across. Several teams from the Telford Combination, which also folded at the end of the 2011-12 season, also became members of the Mercian League and joined either Division One or Two.
The league sits at the same levels of the English football league system as the previous Shropshire County and Telford Combination leagues did (levels 13, 14 and 15). It does not however form part of the National League System, though the longer-term aim of the league's organisers is to have the highest division of the league at Step 7 of the System (level 11).
All scores of the league's Saturday afternoon games are read out on BBC Radio Shropshire, around an hour after full-time.
The league is named after the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Mercia, which covered this area of England. In both seasons so far, all teams have their home grounds in Shropshire.
