The inaugural season started in 1955. Seasons start in late April and last until late October or early November. Teams play 18 matches each (playing each team in the league twice, home and away), totalling 90 matches in the season.


The National League is a standalone football competition, that operates as the highest level of football in Mongolia. It consists of ten teams, eight of which are based in the capital city, Ulaanbaatar, with the remainder coming from other districts. Competing teams in the league play each other twice on a home and away basis. 6 of the Ulaanbaatar-located teams play at the MFF Football Centre, and the others are: Mongolian largest stadium, National Sports Stadium, G-Mobile Arena, Erchim Stadium & Erdenet Stadium.

Three points are gained for a win and one for a draw with no points for a loss. The team with the highest number of points is declared the champion. If two teams finish on equal points then head-to-head is used to determine the winner, with goals scored being the next criterion considered if goal difference cannot separate the teams.

There is no promotion, because it is the top-tier league in Mongolia but there is relegation. The last-placed 2 teams are automatically relegated to Mongolia 1st League, without a play-off match.


The football matches were introduced since 1946 in Mongolia. Then the first official championship was held in 1955, named "Mongolian National Championship". Later in 1996, the league name changed to "Mongolian National Premier League".

Information from the 1950s to the 2000 such as results and teams are not known, only the winners (some runner-ups and third placed teams) are known. There are many teams in Mongolian football leagues history, including Soyol, Khudulmur and Tengeriin Bugnuud.
