The FA Women's Premier League Southern Division is a league in the Third level in the women's football pyramid in England, along with the Northern division. These two divisions are part of the FA Women's Premier League and below the two divisions of the FA Women's Super League.

The league is played on a home and away basis, with each team playing each other twice, and points being awarded in the standard football format. The bottom two clubs are relegated, also on a geographical basis, to the Division One South West, and Division One South East.

Southern Championship teams are eligible to play in the Women's League Cup as well as the FA Women's Cup.
