Northern Premier League
Premier Division
2020–21
Season information
Season statistics
 ← 2019–20
2021–22 → 

Premier Division comprised the same set of 22 teams which competed in the aborted competition the previous season. On 1 June 2020, Mickleover Sports were renamed Mickleover F.C.

As the previous season was terminated due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with all results removed, there were no changes in the allocations of teams for the Northern Premier League. The planned restructuring of the National League System, including the expansion of the Northern Premier League to include a further division at Step 4, was postponed until 2021–22.

For this season it was announced to member clubs that the League Cup would not take place during the season.

Due to the restrictions on clubs' ability to play matches in the COVID-19 lockdowns, competitions at Steps 3–6 were curtailed on 24 February 2021. The scheduled restructuring of non-league will take place at the end of the season, with a new division to be added to Northern Premier League at Step 4 for 2021–22. This will result in 20 extra teams joining the league, either through promotions or reallocations, and some movement of teams currently in the two Division Ones.
