ICC World Cricket League Division Five forms part of the World Cricket League (WCL) system. Like all other divisions, WCL Division Five is contested as a standalone tournament rather than as an actual league.

The inaugural Division Five tournament was held in 2008, hosted by Jersey, and featured 12 teams. At all subsequent tournaments (2010, 2012, 2014, and 2016), the number of teams has been fixed at six. Because the WCL operates on a system of promotion and relegation, teams have generally only participated in one or two Division Five tournaments before being either promoted to Division Four or relegated to Division Six. Overall, 21 teams have played in at least one Division Five tournament. Afghanistan and Nepal have progressed from Division Five to the World Cup Qualifier, the only teams to do so from such a low starting division.
