2012 Faroe Islands Premier League was the seventieth season of top-tier football on the Faroe Islands. For sponsorship reasons, it was known as Effodeildin. The season began on 24 March 2012 with a match between B36 Tórshavn and FC Suðuroy,[1] and ended on 6 October 2012.[2] EB/Streymur won their fourth league title.[3][4] B36 Tórshavn were the defending champions.

Teams[edit]

07 Vestur and B71 Sandoy had finished 9th and 10th respectively at the end of the previous season and were relegated to the 1. deild as a result. 07 Vestur were relegated after just one season in the league while B71 Sandoy left after a two-year stay.

Replacing them were the 1. deild champions FC Suðuroy and runners-up TB Tvøroyri. FC Suðuroy returned to the top flight after a one-year absence, while TB Tvøroyri returned after a six-year absence.
