A league (Mongolian: chuulghan, Chinese: 盟, pinyin: mng) is an administrative unit in Inner Mongolia, People's Republic of China.

Leagues have existed since the Qing Dynasty as a level of government. The head of a league was chosen from jasagh or sula of the banners belonging to it.

Today, leagues belong to the prefecture level of the Chinese administrative hierarchy. Of the 9 leagues that existed in the late 1970s, 6 have now been reorganized into prefecture-level cities.
