The Bermudian Premier Division (officially the Cingular Wireless Premier Division for sponsorship reasons) is the highest level of professional football in Bermuda.

Teams in this league (currently ten) compete for the national title and a spot in the CFU Club Championship. Devonshire Cougars were the first team to participate in that tournament, in 2010. The Bermudian clubs who participated in CONCACAF Champions' Cup (the predecessor to the CONCACAF Champions League), qualified in the North American zone (when zone qualifiers were used), last appearing in 1992.

The bottom two teams at the end of each season are relegated to the First Division.
