The Cymru Alliance League (known for sponsorship reasons as Huws Gray Alliance) is a football league and forms the second level of the Welsh football league system in north and central Wales.

If the team which finishes top of the league holds a Domestic Licence, it may apply for promotion to the Welsh Premier League and is replaced by one of the bottom two teams in the Welsh Premier League.

If the league champions do not hold a Domestic Licence, then the team which finished second, if in possession of a Domestic Licence, may be promoted instead. The most successful club is Oswestry Town with 3 titles.
