The FAW Championship North & Mid[1] is a regional football league in Wales which forms one of two parts of the FAW Championship. It has semi-professional status clubs and is at the second level of the Welsh football league system. The first year of its operation will be 2019–20 with the Football Association of Wales owning and administering the Tier 2 leagues for the first time. These changes follow from a review of the Welsh Football Pyramid.[2]

Prior to 2019, the equivalent league was the Cymru Alliance, covering North and Central Wales. The FAW Championship South & Mid exists in parallel in South Wales, also at the second tier.
