Belarusian Premier League 1995 was the 5th season of top-tier football in Belarus. It started on July 10 and ended on November 6, 1995. Dinamo Minsk were the defending champions.

Team changes from 1994–95 season[edit]

Gomselmash Gomel and Lokomotiv Vitebsk, who finished on 15th and 16th places, relegated to Belarusian First League. They were replaced by two newcomers: First League 1994–95 winners MPKC Mozyr and runners-up Ataka-Aura Minsk.

Overview[edit]

The championship was played as a single round-robun tournament in the second half of 1995 due to change of the league season from winter to summer starting from 1996. This also was the first season with 3-point system. Dinamo Minsk won the championship for the 5th time in a row and qualified for the next season's UEFA Cup, as the Champions League was limited to 23 highest-ranked European national leagues which didn't include Belarus. The championship runners-up and 1995–96 Cup winners MPKC Mozyr qualified for the Cup Winners' Cup. The bronze medalists Dinamo-93 Minsk also qualified for UEFA Cup. Bobruisk, who finished on the last place, were relegated and eventually dissolved prior the 1996 season.
