The 2014 Belarusian First League is the 24th season of 2nd level football in Belarus. It started in April and finished in November 2014.

Team changes from 2013 season[edit]

The winners of last season (Slutsk) were promoted to Belarusian Premier League. They were replaced by last-placed team of 2013 Belarusian Premier League table (Slavia Mozyr).

The runners-up of last season (Gorodeya) lost the promotion/relegation play-off to Dnepr Mogilev (11th-placed Premier League team) and both clubs stayed in their respective leagues.

Two teams that finished at the bottom of 2013 season table (SKVICH Minsk and Polotsk) relegated to the Second League. They were replaced by two best teams of 2013 Second League (Gomelzheldortrans and Neman Mosty).

Neman Mosty eventually refused promotion due to insufficient financing and returned to Second League. They were replaced by Zvezda-BGU Minsk, who finished 3rd in the Second League.

Vedrich-97 Rechitsa were renamed to Rechitsa-2014 before the start of the season.
