The Norwich and District Saturday Football League is a football competition based in England. It has a total of 1 division catering for 12 teams. The league is a feeder league to the Anglian Combination.

The league is affiliated to the Norfolk County Football Association.

The league is one of the oldest competitive leagues within Norfolk and can have up to 80 teams competing at any time from within a radius of 15 miles of Norwich Castle.

Over the last few years, steps have been made within the league to change the look, feel and competitive nature of the league. The two divisions have been shaped to create a more competitive nature and raise standards of football throughout. In 2000 it was decided to drop the 'Business Houses' side of the name that was historically linked to the number of major companies in and around Norwich, but have since disappeared. The league also wanted to focus on the fact that the league is the only true Norwich based league in Norfolk.
