The Cypriot First Division is the top division of women's football in Cyprus. It has been running since its establishment by the Cyprus Football Association (C.F.A) and its originator Mr. Tassos Katsikidis (vice-president of the board) during the 1998–99 season.

The winning team of the league qualifies for a spot in the UEFA Women's Champions League. Although a Cypriot team entered the Champions League every year from 2003–04 onwards, in 2008–09 Apollon Limassol became the first team to win a point in those competitions. There is no second league in Cyprus as of 2014, thus there is no relegation in place.[1]

2016–17 teams[edit]

The league will feature nine teams, one more than last year. The new team is Barcelona Football Academy.[2]
