The Delphian League was an English amateur football league covering Greater London and the surrounding area.

The league was formed in 1951 with 14 clubs and was effectively a level below the Corinthian League.[1] Due to the severe winter during the 1962–63 season the league was abandoned and an emergency competition played, in which the clubs were split into two groups, played each other only once. The two champions, Edmonton and Hertford Town, met in a two-legged final, with Edmonton winning 5–2. At the end of the season both the Delphian League and the Corinthian League merged into the Athenian League, with the Corinthian League clubs forming Division One and Delphian League clubs forming Division Two.[1]
