The league is played on a home and away basis, with each team playing each other twice, and points being awarded in the standard football format. The bottom two clubs are relegated, also on a geographical basis, to the Division One South West, and Division One South East.

Southern Championship teams are eligible to play in the Women's National League Cup as well as the FA Women's Cup.


It was known as the 'Women's Premier League Southern Division' prior to the 2018–19 season.[1]
