Belarusian Premier League 1993–94 was the 3rd season of top-tier football in Belarus. It started on July 17, 1993, and ended on June 18, 1994. Dinamo Minsk were the defending champions.

Team changes from 1992–93 season[edit]

Obuvshchik Lida and Torpedo Zhodino, placed 16th and 17th last year, relegated to Belarusian First League. They were replaced by the 1992–93 First League winners Shinnik Bobruisk. The league was reduced from 17 to 16 teams. Before the start of the season FC Belarus Minsk changed its name to Dinamo-93 Minsk.

Overview[edit]

Dinamo Minsk won the championship for the 3rd time in a row as well as Belarusian Cup for the 2nd time and qualified for the next season's UEFA Cup, as the Champions League was limited to 24 highest-ranked European national leagues which didn't include Belarus. The Cup finalist Fandok Bobruisk qualified for the Cup Winners' Cup. Stroitel Starye Dorogi finished on the last place and was relegated. It was their last season in Premier League to date.
