The 1927–1928 season was the 28th season of competitive football in Belgium. The Belgian Cup was not played this season and would only resume during the 1934-35 season. The Belgium national football team took part to their 3rd Olympic Games football tournament. They qualified for the quarter-finals, losing to Argentina. Beerschot AC won the Premier Division.

Overview[edit]

At the end of the season, SC Anderlechtois and RFC Brugeois were relegated to the Division I, while FC Malinois (Division I winner) and Tilleur FC were promoted to the Premier Division. For the first time test matches have been played to determine the second team to relegate to the Division I as 4 teams finished at the 10th place with the same amount of points. The loser of this final round, RFC Brugeois, was relegated to the Division I. The Promotion - the third level in Belgian football - was won by AS Renaisien, Vilvorde FC and Tubantia FAC. The three clubs were replaced by the 12th, 13th and 14th placed teams in the Division I, i.e. respectively Courtrai Sports, Oude God Sport and Fléron FC.
