Note - 

The Trinidad and Tobago Professional Football League was founded on the 5th of January 1999 with its inaugural season held in the same year to become the first professional football league in the Caribbean.

Prior to the 1990s, professionalism in Trinidad and Tobago football was non-existent. In the 1970s and 1980s, the National League, composed primarily of amateur players, served as the highest level in the Trinidad and Tobago football league system. However, it was during this period Trinidad and Tobago experienced an upswing in support for football following a rise in international success at both club and national team levels.

In 1985, Defence Force became only the second team from CONCACAF to accomplish the continental treble after the club won the National League, FA Trophy, and CONCACAF Champions' Cup. Coupled with the Strike Squad's near qualification for the 1990 FIFA World Cup, optimism for the country's first appearance at the World Cup was at an all-time high.

UPDATE 2020

Note: Defence Force was declared the winner of the 2019/2020 T&T Pro League, after a decision by the League to take preventative measures, due to the deadly COVID19 (coronavirus) and scrap the remainder of leagues games. The Army Coast Guard Combination team led the 11-team standings with 42 points after 17 matches.
