Current: 2020–21 Cymru South

The first year of its operation was in 2019-20 with the Football Association of Wales owning and administering the tier 2 leagues for the first time. These changes followed on from a review of the Welsh Football Pyramid.[2] Prior to 2019, the equivalent league was the Welsh Football League Division One, covering South Wales.
