Before the B-League was founded, the Dhaka League was the top-tier football competition of the country. The Dhaka League changed its title to Dhaka Premier Division League in 1993 but continued to be popularly known by its former name. The Dhaka Premier Division League was played for the last time in 2005 followed by the departure of clubs to the national league.
On March 2, 2007, the much-awaited, first ever professional football league got underway with the opening match between Abahani and Muktijoddha at Bangabandhu National Stadium. Whilst the top clubs now participate in the B-League, some clubs are are now competing in the second-tier Bangladesh Championship League.
The Dhaka Senior Division League was operating as a tier-three league in 2014/15.
