The Liberian First Division, formerly the Liberian Premier League is the highest division in football in Liberia. The first division league began in 1956 and have only once been won by a club outside Monrovia. It has been dominated by Mighty Barrolle FC and Invincible Eleven FC. The league is organized by the Liberia Football Association. In 2010, the league became known as the Cellcom Premier League for sponsorship reasons and it is now called LFA-Cellcom First Division League.


In March 2010, Cellcom GSM, a telecommunications corporation in Liberia and Guinea contracted a three-year sponsorship deal with the League until the end of the 2012/13 season.[1]

In October 2013, Cellcom GSM and the Liberia Football Association extended their deal to another three years until the end of the 2015/16 season.[2]
