The First County Football League (Croatian: Prva županijska liga, or commonly 1. ŽNL) is a fourth level league in the Croatian football league system.[note 1]


The teams are divided into 21 divisions according to 21 Croatian counties competing in a double round-robin format. At the end of each season, the bottom teams are relegated to the respective county's Second league while the winners of each league are either promoted directly to Treća HNL or enter a two-legged playoff to gain promotion.
