The 2014–15 Liga I is the ninety-seventh season of Liga I, the top-level football league of Romania. The season began on the 25 July 2014 and will end on 28 May 2015.[1] Steaua București are the defending champions.

Teams[edit]

The last three teams and the 5th position from the 2013–14 season were initially relegated to their respective 2014–15 Liga II division. Săgeata Năvodari, Poli Timișoara, Corona Brașov were relegated and the 5th-placed Vaslui was relegated due to financial problems after 9 seasons in the top flight.

The first two teams from each of the two divisions of 2013–14 Liga II advanced to Liga I. CSMS Iași promoted as the winners of Seria I.[2] It is their second season in Liga I. The other three teams are also for the first time in Liga I: Rapid București, second place in Seria I, CS Universitatea Craiova and Târgu Mureș from Seria II.

Rapid București was initially not given licence for the 2014–15 Liga I, but on 30 June 2014, the International Court of Arbitration for Sport upheld the appeal of Rapid București and therefore decided that they could promote in Liga I.[3]
