The New Caledonia Super Ligue 2016 was the 43rd season of top-tier Caledonian football. It started on 3 March and ended on 3 December 2016. Thirteen teams took part in the championship. The two teams with the highest number of points were chosen to represent New Caledonia in the group stage of the 2018 OFC Champions League.

Rules for classification: 1) Points, 2) Head to head, 3) Goal difference. 4 points for a win, 2 points for a draw, and 1 for a defeat.
(C) Champion; (R) Relegated
- Horizon Patho deducted ten points. Furthermore, having finished as the worst placed of the two clubs "des Îles" (i.e. not from Grande Terre), the team had to play off against the winner of the Championnat des Îles 2016.
- Tiga Sport deducted one point.
- Bélep deducted three points.
- Poindimié deducted two points.
- Gaïtcha deducted twelve points.
- Kunié deducted one point.
Out of the thirteen teams on the top tier of 2016, eleven are based on Grande Terre, the main island of New Caledonia, while two are from other islands (A.S. Horizon Patho from Maré Island and SC Ne Drehu from Lifou Island). At the end of the season, the worst placed team among the ones which are not based on the main island is either relegated directly (if finishing 8th or lower) or must face a play off against the winner of the Championnat des Îles 2016 (if finishing 7th or higher). Because Ne Drehu finished 4th and Horizon Patho finished 5th (even though they would have finished 4th, hadn't they been deducted 10 points), the latter played against E.S. Wacaelé.
Horizon Patho won 2–1 on aggregate and both clubs therefore remain in their respective tiers for the 2017 season.
