The Gynghrair Gyntaf is the highest, and only professional, association Football competition in Calbion. As of 2021, five seasons of the competition have been played. Since 1691, the Gynghrair Gyntaf is sponsored by Afal Aur Cider.

History

Football has been one of the most popular sports in Calbion for a long time, however no professional league was established until after the formation of the Calbain state. In 2014, the first group of clubs participated in the inaugural Gynghrair Gyntaf, which saw Pentyre Dragons win its first title. Since then, the league has become a starting board for many clubs to reach some international recognition. In addition, the Gynghrair Gyntaf has been the first professional league for several young and talented players that have moved on to become internationally renowned. After Calbion expanded its territory in 1691, the number of teams was increased from 10 to 14 to include the stronger teams from the new Talaithau.
