2018 Premier League

The Mercury Premier League is the top football league in Mercury, run by the MeFA. The league is contested by twelve teams, each scheduled to play 22 games.

History

The Mercury League was founded in 2010 with six teams. The season continued for three rounds of fixtures, before the fixture list was lost. The competition was replaced by a knockout cup for the remainder of the season.

In the second season, the clubs competing in the original Mercury League moved into the Four Nations league system, and were replaced by six new teams in the Mercury League. The competition was won by Mercury Armed Forces FC. In 2012, the league format underwent further changes. The teams that had broken off to join the Four Nations rejoined the Mercury League, forming the Premier League, with the remaining teams forming the Second League.

2013 Changes

The Mercury FA changed the Mercury League system for 2013, to accommodate the incoming Nova English clubs. The Premier League was expanded from 8 to 12 teams, by promoting the top four teams from the 2012 Second League.
