The West Cheshire Association Football League (commonly known as the West Cheshire League) is an English football league in the county of Cheshire. Its current principal sponsor is Carlsberg, also sponsor of the South West Peninsula League. It has a Division One, Divisions Two and Division Three. Division One sits at step 7 (or level 11) of the National League System.

If they have floodlights, the league's clubs are eligible for the FA Vase but not the FA Cup, and its champions are eligible for promotion to the North West Counties Football League Division One. After several triumphs in Division One, Cammell Laird was promoted to the North West Counties League in 2004, and its reserve team, which had won Division Two, was promoted to the Division One. It was the only team since Vauxhall Motors to be promoted from the league, until Runcorn Town was promoted in 2010. In 2014, Vauxhall Motors returned to the league.

The league also runs cup competitions.
