Location of Russian Top League clubs in 1992

Statistics of Russian Top League in season 1992.

Overview[edit]

Twenty clubs of the former Soviet competition took place in this season. The league was combined out of six clubs of the Soviet Top League, 11 - Soviet First League, and the rest out of the Buffer League (Center and East). FC Spartak Moscow won the championship.

The composition of groups may seem kind of uneven with four Top League clubs in Group A and two — in Group B. However the seeding was done upon the completion of the previous Soviet season with Rotor being conditionally promoted to the top level.
