West Midlands (Regional) League
The West Midlands (Regional) League is an English association football competition for semi-professional and amateur teams based in the West Midlands county, Shropshire, Worcestershire, southern Staffordshire and northern Herefordshire.
It has two divisions, the highest of which is Division One, a regional feeder for the National League System (NLS) at the eleventh level of the overall English football league system.
The league was formed in 1889 as the Birmingham & District League to cater for teams in Birmingham and the surrounding area, but soon became established as one of the strongest leagues outside the Football League itself, with teams from as far afield as Bristol and Wales taking part.
In 1977, the league was renamed the West Midlands (Regional) League.
The current season is the 2023-2024 season. There are 30 teams competing in Division One, and 22 teams competing in Division Two.
The current champions of Division One are AFC Bridgnorth. The current champions of Division Two are Wolverhampton Casuals.
