The Hampshire Premier League is a football competition based in Hampshire, England. The league was formed in 2007[1] and currently consists of a 'Senior Division' of 16 teams, most of which were previously members of the disbanded Division 2 of the Wessex League, a Division One of 9 teams, and a 'Combination Division' for reserve teams which currently has 14 members. The league is currently named the 'Puma Engineering Hampshire Premier Football League' for sponsor purposes.

In May 2008 it was announced that the league was in talks with the Hampshire League 2004 about merging the two leagues into a new competition which it was hoped would officially gain Step 7 status,[2] and although the merger did not take place, the status of the Hampshire Premier League at Step 7 of the National League System (or level 11 of the overall English football league system) was confirmed by The Football Association on 15 May 2008.[3] The Hampshire League then appealed to the FA, claiming it should gain similar status, but the appeal was rejected.[4]

The Hampshire League 2004 was dissolved at the end of the 2012-13 season, with the majority of the teams joining the newly created Division One of the Hampshire Premier League.[5]
