The Scottish Junior Football North Premier League (also known as the Superleague) is the highest division of the North Region of the Scottish Junior Football Association. It was established in 2001 and from 2007, the league champions have qualified for the following season's Scottish Cup.


Member clubs for the 2016–17 season

Beginning from the 2013–14 season, the two automatically relegated clubs drop into one of two regional divisions below the North Superleague. In 2016–17, a play-off was introduced between the third bottom Superleague side and the runners-up in the East and West sections of the North First Division, potentially adding a third relegation place.

Membership of the North Superleague is dependent on more stringent ground criteria than the general entry requirements to the North Region and in recent years, both Inverness City (twice), and Grantown were refused promotion to the North Superleague on this basis.

All-time Superleague table

This table is a cumulative record of matches played in the North Superleague since its inception in 2001. The table is accurate from the 2001–02 season to the end of the 2011–12 season, inclusive. Teams highlighted in bold are members of the 2012–13 North Superleague.

Aberdeen Lads Club withdrew from Junior football on the eve of the 2008–09 season. Formartine United and Turriff United joined the Highland Football League in 2009.
