Locations of the teams that participated in the 2006 Russian Premier League

The 2006 Russian Premier League was the 15th season of the Russian Football Championship, and the fifth under the current Russian Premier League name.

The season started on 17 March 2006 and ended on 26 November 2006. Defending champions CSKA Moscow claimed their second successive title on 18 November 2006 with an away win over Luch-Energiya Vladivostok.[1] Spartak Moscow finished runners-up, level on points with CSKA but ranked behind due to fewer wins (see Tie-breaking criteria below). Lokomotiv Moscow finished third.

Torpedo Moscow and Shinnik were relegated. It was the first time in Torpedo Moscow's history that the club was relegated.

  1. higher number of wins in all matches;
  2. results of matches between the two teams (1. higher number of points obtained; 2. higher goal difference; 3. higher number of goals scored; 4. higher number of away goals scored);
  3. drawing of lots, or an additional match between the two teams, with extra time and a penalty shoot-out if necessary.
