The Duchy League is a football competition based in the eastern half of Cornwall, United Kingdom, but also includes a few sides from over the border in Devon. The League was formed in 1965 as a merger of the Liskeard & District League and the St. Austell & District League. It has a total of six divisions headed by the Duchy League Premier Division, which sits at level 14 of the English football league system. It is a feeder to the East Cornwall League Division One. In 2014–15, Padstow United won the Premier Division, and earned promotion to the East Cornwall League Division One.
