The Cypriot Football A Division or Cyprus Championship First Division (in Greek Παγκύπριο Πρωτάθλημα Α΄ Κατηγορίας) is the highest football league in Cyprus. At present, 14 clubs compete in the league, playing each other team in the league twice, once at home and once away. At the end of the season, three clubs are relegated to Cypriot Second Division, the second-level league, to be replaced by the top three teams from that league.

The league is entitled to one entrant - the champions - in the UEFA Champions League. They currently enter the competition in the second qualifying round. The winners of the Cyprus Cup enter the UEFA Europa League's third qualifying round. The runners-up and third-placed team in the league enter the UEFA Europa League in the second qualifying round. If the cup winners are also league champions, then the losing cup finalists are granted a UEFA Europa League berth. If the cup winners qualify for Europe by their league position, then the fourth-placed team in the league qualifies for the UEFA Europa League second qualifying round.
