Clubs in membership (2017–18)Edit

FormatEdit

The league season lasts from August to May with each club playing the others twice, once at their home ground and once at that of their opponents. Teams receive three points for a win and one point for a draw. No points are awarded for a loss. Teams are ranked by total points, then goal difference, and then goals scored.

Intermediate AEdit

For the 2017–18 season there are 14 clubs, each playing a total of 26 games. The league champions can be promoted to NIFL Premier Intermediate League, providing they meet the admission requirements. Normally the two lowest placed teams are relegated to the Intermediate B division, or lowest three placed teams if the division receives a team relegated from the NIFL Premier Intermediate League and fails to promote a team in return.

Intermediate BEdit

For the 2017–18 season there are 13 clubs, each playing a total of 24 games. The two highest placed teams are promoted into the Intermediate A division. If the Intermediate A division receives a team relegated from the NIFL Premier Intermediate League and fails to promote a team in return, it will relegate three teams to the Intermediate B division, requiring the team finishing bottom of the Intermediate B division to be relegated to Junior Division 1.

Junior Divisions 1–4Edit

There are four divisions which have junior status: Division 1, Division 2, Division 3 and Division 4. The league winner can be promoted into the Intermediate section as long as their ground meets Intermediate standards.

Reserves 1–4Edit

There are four divisions for reserve sides. The divisions are called Reserve 1, Reserve 2, Reserve 3 and Reserve 4
