The 2012 Belarusian Premier League is the 22nd season of top-tier football in Belarus. It began on 24 March 2012 and ended on 25 November 2012.[1] BATE Borisov were the defending champions, having won their 8th league title last year.

Teams[edit]

Dnepr Mogilev were relegated to the Belarusian First League after finishing the 2011 season in last place, leaving the league for the first time since the competition's establishment in 1992. They were replaced by 2011 First League champions Slavia-Mozyr, who make their return to the league after a five year absence.

Vitebsk, as the 11th-placed team, had to compete in the relegation/promotion playoffs against First League runners-up Partizan Minsk. Partizan Minsk won the playoff, 3–2 on aggregate, and returned to the league after a one-year absence while Vitebsk were relegated after six years in the top flight. In early 2012 Partizan was abandoned by their main sponsor Vladimir Romanov and consequently wasn't able to keep any of the first team players or obtain the Premier League license.[2] Partizan withdrew from the Premier League, leaving it with only 11 teams.[3]

Dinamo Brest changed their name to FC Brest due to troubles with further usage of Dinamo brand name.
