The 2020–21 Gibraltar National League season is the second season of the new Gibraltar National League in Gibraltar, and the 122nd season of football on the territory overall. There are no reigning champions this season, as the previous season was declared abandoned as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The league is due to kick off on 16 October 2020. Instead of qualifying for the 2021–22 UEFA Europa League, teams placed 2nd, 3rd and the 2021 Rock Cup winners will qualify for the inaugural UEFA Europa Conference League.

Format

The structure of the league will follow that of the previous season. Teams will play one round of games as a single league, before splitting into two groups: the Championship Group contested by the top 6 sides, and the Challenge Group between the bottom 6 sides. The winners of the Challenge Group will receive the GFA Challenge Trophy and receive a bye to the second round of the next season's Rock Cup.

Teams

The following 12 teams are currently anticipated to contest the 2020–21 Gibraltar National League, as of 28 May 2020. League positions from the previous season represent where teams stood when the season was abandoned.

Note: Flags indicate national team as has been defined under FIFA eligibility rules. Players may hold more than one non-FIFA nationality.

Forfeits for Home Grown Player violations

The season suffered early controversy when several teams were forced to forfeit games for violations of the Home Grown Player rule, due to confusion over the new rules regarding time limits for changes if a Home Grown Player is sent off. Below are the games that have been forfeited for rule breaches.

Date Original score GFA decision
31 October 2020 Bruno's Magpies 1–0 Boca Gibraltar 3-0 win to Bruno's Magpies
1 November 2020 Glacis United 1–1 Lynx 3-0 win to Lynx
21 November 2020 Glacis United 1–1 Europa Point 3-0 win to Glacis United
28 November 2020 Europa Point 1–2 Boca Gibraltar 3-0 win to Europa Point

Additionally, Boca Gibraltar failed to field a team on 5 December 2020 against Mons Calpe, subsequently forfeiting the tie. After doing so again on 9 December, they were expelled from the league.
