The Bulgarian women's league (Bulgarian: Българска женска лига) also known as Swiss Capital League for sponsorship reasons, is Bulgarian's top level league of women's football in Bulgaria.

It features fourteen teams that play a double round robin to decide the champion, which qualifies for a spot in the UEFA Women's Champions League. Because of the few teams in the country the league has no relegation to a second league.[2]
