The Wakefield and District Football Association League is a football competition based in Yorkshire, England. It has a total of three divisions headed by the Premier Division, which sits at level 14 of the English football league system. It is a feeder to the West Yorkshire Association Football League. Horbury Town, Garforth Rangers, Rothwell, Thornes, and Thornhill were the most recent teams to move up from the league. Horbury (in 2005), Garforth & Rothwell (2010) and Thornhill (2013) chose to play their football in the West Yorkshire League whereas Thornes (2013) went into the West Riding County Amateur League.

Fieldhead Hospital, originally based in the City's Hospital of the same name, are the oldest team in the league, joining in the 1973–74 season, and being a playing member ever since.
