The 2021–22 Natopian Major League season was the 11th professional season of the top-flight football league in Natopia. It was also the first where two minor league series were brought under the control of the Major League, albeit keeping their Minor League names.

Natopian Major League

The Natopian Major League was contested by ten teams, who played each other four times, twice at home and twice on the road. The split season used in 2020–21 was discontinued. At the end of the season, the top four would contest the Championship play-offs, known as the Liguilla; only the last-place team was relegated, in anticipation for three promotions so the league could return to twelve participants.
