The BH Telecom Premier League of Bosnia and Herzegovina is the top football league in Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is the country's most prestigious level of football competition currently contested by 16 clubs with last two teams relegated at the end of every season.

The League is, as of season 2012–13, represented by four clubs in European competition. The winner of the Premier League starts from the Champions League second qualifying round. The winner of the Football Cup of Bosnia and Herzegovina starts from the second qualifying round of Europa League, while the runner up and the third placed team start their journey from the first qualifying round of Europa League.

At the end of the season last two teams are relegated, and winners of First League of Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina and First League of Republika Srpska are promoted to Premier League.

The league is operated by the Football Association of Bosnia and Herzegovina. In 1998 and 2000, the champion was decided after a play-off between Bosniak and Bosnian Croat clubs. In 2000, a national league started for the first time, with Serbian clubs refusing to take part in the first two league seasons, eventually joining in 2002.

On 31 July 2012, the Football Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina signed a two-year deal with BH Telecom regarding the sponsorship of the league, effectively renaming the league BH Telecom Premier League.
