1993–94 Vyshcha Liha was the third season of the Vyshcha Liha.

Last season the league champions Dynamo received a fierce competition from the Pavlov led Dnipro out of Dnipropetrovsk. The third season was promising to be even more exciting. Dynamo was going through some difficult times and before the start of the season it was sold to Hryhoriy Surkis from Viktor Bezverkhyi.

The season started on August 8 with nine games of the first round. It finally was concluded on June 19. It was anticipated that at least four clubs would be really competing for the top title. At the end it turned out the other way around. Dnipro has remarkably given up its positions, losing almost ten games. Chornomorets also did not pose any resistance to neither Dynamo or Shakhtar. However the biggest surprise was the relegation of Metalist Kharkiv which managed to win only six games. Metalurh Zaporizhia barely managed to escape relegation, partially due to they excellent game in Kharkiv where they manage to thrash the local Metalist 3:0. Three rounds before the end Dynamo was recognized as the champions. There was one technical loss (-:+) that was awarded again to SC Tavriya Simferopol when it was hosting FC Volyn Lutsk in the 32nd round on June 11, 1994, for fielding a suspended player Dzyubenko.
