The Tasmania North Premier League, currently known for sponsorship reasons as the Forestry Tasmania Northern Premier League an association football (soccer) league in Northern Tasmania. Nationally it sits under the A-League and T-League. It is controlled by the Football Federation Tasmania (FFT), the state's governing body. Between 2001-2012 the Southern and Northern Premier Leagues were the state's highest level of soccer competition. In this period the top four teams from the Northern Premier League and the top four teams from the Southern Premier League play off in a knock-out final series to decide the state champion. This system came into existence in 2009 and replaced the previous system whereby the Northern and Southern champions played off. The Northern Premier League champion is decided in the typical fashion with the team finishing first being named league champion.

There is no promotion or relegation in the Tasmanian Northern Premier League.
