The Welsh Premier League is the top level women's football league in Wales and was founded in 2009.
The winner receives £8,000 and qualifies for a spot in the UEFA Women's Champions League - in previous years the national cup winner gained the European place.
After three seasons of regional conferences with a play-off final between the Northern and Southern champions to crown the winner, the League was run as a national 12-club competition for the first time in season 2012/13.
Swansea City Ladies were the inaugural champions, beating Caernarfon Town Ladies 4-0 in the final, and again lifted the league title in 2010/11.
UWIC, who are now re-named Cardiff Met, lifted the crown in 2014 in a domestic treble of Welsh and League Cups and retained their league title in 2015.
