The Armenian Premier League (Armenian: Բարձրագույն Խումբ) is the top football competition in Armenia. From 1936 to 1991, the competition was held as a regional tournament within the USSR. After independence, the Football Federation of Armenia has been the unit in charge. Over the years, the league has evolved into a small league consisting of only six teams. The winner of the league is awarded a spot in the first qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League.
