The Dutch Eerste Divisie in the 1981/1982 season was contested by 18 teams, one less than in the previous season. This was due to the bankruptcy of FC Vlaardingen. Helmond Sport won the championship.

From this season onwards, instead of two, three teams would promote to the eredivisie. Two were promoted directly and one through a promotion competition which was organized the same as in previous seasons.
