The Chilean women's football championship (Spanish: Campeonato Nacional Primera División de Fútbol Femenino) is the main league competition for women's football in Chile. The winner qualifies for the Copa Libertadores de Fútbol Femenino, the South American Champions League. The competition is organised by the Chilean Football Federation.


The Apertura and Clausura format is used, thus there are two champions per year. Apertura starts early in the year, Clausura starts mid year and ends in December. As of 2013 about 20 teams play in two divisions, a Southern one and a Central one. They play a single round-robin tournament. After that the top four teams advance to the quarter-finals. Since 2014 the final is played in only one match, as the other knock-out matches, before that the final was two-legged. If different teams win the Apertura and Clausura there is a play-off for the Copa Libertadores spot.
