A league (Mongolian: Ayimagh.svg ayimaɣ or, historically, Cighulghan.svg čiɣulɣan; Chinese: 盟, pinyin: méng) 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. The original six leagues were Jirim, Juu Uda, Josutu, Xilingol, Ulanqab, and Yeke Juu. More were added in the subsequent centuries.

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.
