The Premier Division champions are promoted to the Thames Valley Premier Football League, while the bottom two teams are relegated to Division One. The top two teams from Division One are promoted, while the bottom two teams are relegated to the Berks & Bucks Intermediate League.
The EBFA also runs two cup competitions:
- East Berks League Cup

The East Berks League Cup is open to all teams in the EBFA, while the East Berks Presidents Cup is only open to teams in the Premier Division.
