The East Cornwall League (ECL), formerly the East Cornwall Premier League, is a football competition based in Cornwall and west Devon, England, in the United Kingdom. The Premier Division and Division One sit at level 12 and 13 of the English football league system. Due to a sponsorship arrangement, the league is currently known as the Mortgage Advice Bureau East Cornwall League. The Premier division has 14 clubs and Division One has 15, with two-up two-down promotion and relegation between the divisions.

Up to 20 clubs competed in a single division until the 2005–06 season, after which the league was split into two divisions for the first time, with the top fourteen clubs from 2005–06 forming the Premier Division and the remaining clubs and a number of Plymouth-based sides transferring from the Plymouth and West Devon League to form a new Division One. Three teams from the East Cornwall League (Camelford, Dobwalls and Foxhole Stars) were promoted as founder members of the new South West Peninsula League in Division One West in 2007. Premier Division champions St. Dennis were promoted at the end of the 2010–11 season, runners-up Sticker were promoted at the end of the 2011-12 season and Millbrook were promoted at the end of the 2013-14 season after finishing third.
