The Costa Rican women's football championship is the main women's football competition in Costa Rica. It was established in 2000.


The league is played in the Apertura and Clausura format. The Apertura is played from spring to autumn, and the Clausura from autumn to spring. In each of those the top 4 finishers play a semi-final and final. After both season halves are finished, the Apertura and Clausura champion meet in a championship final to crown the champion. Should one team have won Apertura and Clausura, it is the champion without having to play a final.
