Belarusian Premier League 1994–95 was the 4th season of top-tier football in Belarus. It started July 13, 1994 and ended on June 23, 1995. Dinamo Minsk were the defending champions.

Team changes from 1993–94 season[edit]

Stroitel Starye Dorogi, placed 16th last year, relegated to Belarusian First League. They were replaced by the First League 1993–94 winners Obuvshchik Lida. KIM Vitebsk changed their name to Dvina Vitebsk and Fandok Bobruisk to FC Bobruisk.

Overview[edit]

Dinamo Minsk won the championship for the 4th time in a row 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 first-time Cup winners Dinamo-93 Minsk qualified for the Cup Winners' Cup. Gomselmash Gomel and Lokomotiv Vitebsk, who finished on 15th and 16th places, were relegated. It was the last season for Lokomotiv in Premier League as they dissolved after playing in lower leagues for a few years.
