The 2020–21 NIFL Premiership season (known as the Danske Bank Premiership for sponsorship reasons) was the 13th season of the NIFL Premiership, the top-flight of football in Northern Ireland in its current format, and the 120th season of top-flight football in the country as a whole. Linfield were the defending champions.

The title was once again won by Linfield, their 7th Premiership title and 55th title overall, who subsequently qualified for the 2021–22 UEFA Champions League qualifiers with Coleraine, Glentoran and Larne qualifying for the 2021–22 UEFA Conference League qualifiers. The club who finished bottom of the league was Dungannon Swifts, however, they were reprieved from relegation due to the majority of clubs in the NIFL Championship voted to end the season early due to the COVID-19 pandemic, meaning no teams would be promoted to the top-flight.
