Divisiones Regionales de Fútbol in Canary Islands

The Divisiones Regionales de Fútbol in the Canary Islands are ultimately overseen by the Federación Canaria de Fútbol which operates Group 12 of the Tercera División, the fourth tier of the Spanish football league system which is divided among each of the country's autonomous regions. However, unlike most of the regions, the leagues in the fifth tier and below are organised by two separate federations, corresponding to the provinces of Las Palmas and Tenerife. The other region with this arrangement is the Basque Country which has three provincial forks to its amateur setup.
