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 league sits at level 12 of the English football league system and consists of 18 clubs. Due to a sponsorship arrangement, the league is currently known as the Mortgage Advice Bureau East Cornwall League.

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 14 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 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.

For the 2019–20 season, the league reverted to one division after the creation of the St Piran League.
