The 2019–20 NIFL Premiership (known as the Danske Bank Premiership for sponsorship reasons) will be the 12th season of Northern Ireland's highest national football league in this format since its inception in 2008, the 119th season of Irish league football overall, and the seventh season of the league operating as part of the Northern Ireland Football League. The season will begin in August 2019 and will conclude in April 2020, with the play-offs for promotion/relegation and the Europa League then taking place in May 2020.

Linfield are the defending champions, having lifted the league title for a record 53rd time the previous season.

The winners will qualify for the 2020–21 UEFA Champions League, while the runners-up and the play-off winners will qualify for the 2020–21 UEFA Europa League, along with the 2019–20 Irish Cup winners.

Teams

Twelve teams will compete in the 2019–20 NIFL Premiership, ten of which will have retained their Premiership status from the previous season. Last season's bottom Premiership club, Newry City, were relegated to the 2019–20 NIFL Championship after only one season in the top flight, and were replaced by Larne, who were promoted to this season's Premiership as 2018–19 NIFL Championship winners. This marked a return to the top flight for the first time in 11 years for Larne, after they were relegated at the end of the 2007–08 season when they did not apply for a place in the newly-introduced Premiership for the following season.
