The Capital League was an American football league based in the United Kingdom, containing 11 teams from London and the Home Counties. Established in 1987, the league lasted just one season before merging with the British Gridiron Football League (BGFL) in 1988 to become the British National Gridiron League (BNGL). Only one of its teams, Chiltern Cheetahs, survives today.

The Capital League's only champions were the LA (London Area) Panthers, who defeated St Albans Kestrels 22-20 in the Capital Bowl.
