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

The inaugural Division Three tournament was held in 2007, and featured eight teams. All subsequent editions have featured six teams. Because the WCL operates on a system of promotion and relegation, teams have generally only participated in one or two Division Three tournaments before either being promoted to Division Two or relegated to Division Four. Overall, 17 teams have featured in a Division Three tournament. Uganda has appeared in the division on four out of the five occasions it has been held, while four other teams (Hong Kong, Italy, Papua New Guinea, and the United States) have featured on three occasions.
