The Scottish Premiership, often referred to simply as the Premiership, is the pinnacle of professional football in Scotland. Established in 2013, it is the top tier of the Scottish Professional Football League (SPFL), the governing body for professional football clubs in Scotland.

The Premiership's roots trace back to the formation of the Scottish Football League in 1890, which later evolved into the Scottish Premier League in 1998 before finally becoming the Scottish Premiership in 2013. This change was part of a major restructuring of Scottish football, aimed at creating a more competitive and financially stable environment for clubs.

The league comprises 12 teams, each playing 38 matches per season. The format includes three rounds of home and away matches, followed by a split into a top six and bottom six, where teams play an additional five matches against those in their respective sections. This unique format, known as the 'split season', creates an intense and unpredictable competition, with every match carrying significant implications for the final standings.

The Premiership is renowned for producing some of Scotland's most talented footballers, including Kenny Dalglish, Denis Law, and more recently, Andrew Robertson. It is also home to some of the oldest and most successful clubs in Scottish football history, such as Celtic and Rangers, known collectively as the "Old Firm". These two Glasgow-based clubs have a fierce rivalry that dates back to 1888 and is one of the most famous in world football.

The winner of the Premiership earns the right to represent Scotland in the UEFA Champions League, Europe's premier club competition. The teams finishing second and third, along with the winner of the Scottish Cup, qualify for the UEFA Europa League. The bottom-placed team faces relegation to the Scottish Championship, the second tier of the SPFL, while the second-bottom team enters a playoff with Championship teams for a place in the next season's Premiership.

Over the years, the Scottish Premiership has faced challenges, including financial instability and a competitive imbalance. However, it has remained resilient, continuing to provide a platform for Scottish footballers to showcase their talents and for clubs to engage with their passionate fan bases. Despite its relatively small size compared to other European leagues, the Premiership's rich history, competitive spirit, and the passionate support of its fans ensure it remains a vital part of the Scottish sporting landscape.
