Armenian Premier League

The Armenian Premier League (}|noArmenian

8; }|Բարձրագույն Խումբ|rtl=}}}}|, lit. }}}}/noinclude>) is the top football competition in Armenia. From 1936 to 1991, the competition was held as a regional tournament within the USSR. After independence, the Football Federation of Armenia has been the unit in charge. The seasons run from spring to fall. Over the years, the league has evolved into a small league consisting of only eight teams, and two minor divisions. The Premier League currently consists of eight teams, and relegates to the Armenian First League. The winner of the league is awarded a first round play-off spot in the UEFA Champions League.
