The 2009/10 league apparently was the first with 'equal rights', with 3 clubs from Tortola and 5 from Virgin Gorda; all regular season matches were played on Virgin Gorda and the championship playoff on Tortola. In 2010/11, matches during the regular season were held on both islands (and no playoff was organised).
In 1999, a club from Virgin Gorda joined the Tortola league for the first time. The Tortola league was not played after the abandonment of the 2005 season; between 2006 and 2008 there only was a league on Virgin Gorda.

1996 Spice United 1997 Beverly Hills 1998 United Kickers 1999 not known 2000 Rangers 2001 Rangers 2002/03 Rangers 2003/04 Rangers 2004/05 Rangers 2005 Hairoun 2006 Rangers 2007 Rangers 2008 Hairoun Stars 2009 no competition (first ever 'joint' league, see above) NB: on the occasion of Hairoun's championship 2005 it was mentioned they had ended a 'eight-year reign' of Rangers; after their 2007 championship, Rangers were reported to have won 10 of the 11 last championships; this is peculiar as they were not listed among the 1998 or 1999 participants and the 1998 winners United Kickers finished runners-up behind Rangers in 2000 so cannot be a former name of the club.
