The 2020–21 Southern Football League season is the 118th in the history of the Southern League since its establishment in 1894. The league has two Premier divisions (Central and South) at step 3 of the National League System (NLS) and two Division One divisions (Central and South) at step 4. These correspond with Levels 7 and 8 of the English football league system.

The allocations for Steps 3 and 4 for season 2020–21 were announced by the FA on 21 July 2020.

Due to the restrictions on clubs' ability to play matches in the lockdowns associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, 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, which will result in some reallocations into or out of, and promotions to, the Southern League's Step 4 divisions.
