  • NOTE: In seasons 1981, 1982 and 1983, rival leagues were in operation. It was agreed that the top five clubs from each league plus the national under-21 squad would form an 11 team united league for 1984.

ASL Sports won the league, but refused to enter the play-offs which had been hastily added to the schedule near the end of the regular season. Stripped of their league crown, ASL Sports withdrew from the national league. Four national league clubs (ECM Motown, Tacarigua United, HAS Cocorite United and KFC Memphis) and three other clubs followed suit to form an eight team rival league for the 1985-season.
