For the most recent versions of the President's Cup, teams from both of the Northern Premier League Division One leagues took part in the tournament, with teams that played in the preliminary round of the Northern Premier League Challenge Cup receiving a bye to the second round. Starting with 2011–12 season the NPL decided to not stage the competition due to it causing fixture congestion and clubs losing money to play the games. Instead, the President's Cup will be awarded to the team that tops the fair play league.
The President's Cup's first season was in 1981–82. At this point the Northern Premier League consisted of just one division and the tournament was a "plate" competition for teams that had lost in the Northern Premier League Challenge Cup. The competition was later competed by Division One teams exclusively. No team ever successfully defended the title, however, South Liverpool, Fleetwood Town, Witton Albion, Runcorn and Belper Town came close, appearing in consecutive finals. Two Welsh teams won the President's Cup: Rhyl in the competition's 1984–85 season and Bangor City in the 1988–89 season.
