Rules for classification: 1) points; 2) number of matches won; if teams are still tied a play-off is organised.

Positions by round[edit]

Note: The classification was made after the weekend (or midweek) of each matchday, so postponed matches were only processed at the time they were played to represent the real evolution in standings.

  • On matchday 11, the match between Standard and Zulte Waregem was stopped by the referee due to supporter violence with only 89 minutes played, with Zulte Waregem leading 1–2.[28] The 'commission for disputes' decided on 28 October (between matchdays 12 and 13) that the result would be changed to a 0–5 away win, Standard was to pay a fine of €5000 and play one match behind closed doors.[29] Standard filed objections against this ruling and the Belgian Sportsarbitrage finally ruled on 10 December that the 1–2 result would stand, between matchdays 18 and 19. The fine of €5000 was kept, but the match behind closed doors was dropped.[30]
  • On 27 December 2014, the final day of matchday 21, the match between Genk and Oostende was postponed due to snow. It was immediately rescheduled to 3 February 2015, between matchdays 24 and 25.[31]

2 The match was abandoned after 89 minutes due to Standard Liège supporter violence, with Zulte Waregem at that time leading 1–2. Standard Liège was subsequently given a 0–5 loss and forced to play one match behind closed doors.[29] Standard however objected this ruling and after revision by the Belgian Sportsarbitrage, it was decided that the 1–2 result stood and that Standard was fined €5000. The one match behind closed doors penalty was dropped.[30]
Colours: Blue = home team win; Yellow = draw; Red = away team win.

Championship Playoff[edit]

The points obtained during the regular season were halved (and rounded up) before the start of the playoff. As a result, the teams started with the following points before the playoff: Club Brugge 31 points, Gent 29, Anderlecht 29, Standard 27, Kortrijk 26 and Charleroi 25. Had any ties occurred at the end of the playoffs, the half point would have been deducted if it was added. However, as all six teams received the half point bonus, this did not make a difference this season.

Europa League playoff final[edit]

The winners of both playoff groups will compete in a two-legged match to play the fourth-placed team of the championship playoff, called Testmatch. The winners of this Testmatch will be granted entry to the second qualifying round of the 2015–16 UEFA Europa League.

Testmatches Europa League[edit]

The Europa League playoff final will be played over two legs between the Europa league playoff final winners and the fourth (or fifth) placed finisher of the championship playoff.

Relegation Playoff[edit]

The teams that finished in the last two positions will face each other in the relegation playoff. Lierse was sure of ending up in the relegation playoff after losing away to Gent on 7 March 2015, while Cercle Brugge qualified one week later after losing 2-3 at home to Mechelen.

The winner of this playoff will play the second division playoff with three Belgian Second Division teams, with only the winner of that playoff playing at the highest level the next season.
