The West Yorkshire Association Football League is a football competition based in Yorkshire, England. It was previously known as the Leeds League until the name change in 1939. Although it is named the West Yorkshire League, clubs from the Harrogate and York areas of North Yorkshire also play in the competition.
Currently the league has three senior team divisions, and two for reserves. Officially part of the National League System, the Premier Division is a step 7 (or level 11) league in the pyramid. Clubs are able to be promoted to the Northern Counties East Football League or the North West Counties Football League; Knaresborough Town in 2012 were accepted by the Northern Counties East League and Shelley Community were accepted by the North West Counties League in 2018.
Some other teams who once played in the West Yorkshire League but now play their football at higher levels of the pyramid, include AFC Emley, Harrogate Town, Harrogate Railway Athletic, Ossett Town (now merged with Ossett Albion to form Ossett United), Thackley and Garforth Town.
