Eerste Divisie
Season 2014–15

The 2014–15 Eerste Divisie, known as Jupiler League[1] for sponsorship reasons, was the fifty-ninth season of Eerste Divisie since its establishment in 1955. It began in August 2014 with the first matches of the season and will end in May 2015 with the returns of the finals of the promotion/relegation play-offs, involving also the 16th- and 17th-placed teams from the 2014–15 Eredivisie.

Teams[edit]

A total of 20 teams took part in the league. Willem II were promoted from the Eerste Divisie as 2013–14 champions and replaced by bottom-placed Eredivisie Roda JC Kerkrade, whereas Dordrecht and Excelsior won a top flight place in the nacompetitie, replacing NEC and RKC Waalwijk who were eliminated from the post-season playoff and therefore relegated to Eerste Divisie for this season.

Notes:
  1. ^ a b c d N.E.C. won the first period and was league leader over the other three periods as well. Almere City, FC Oss and FC Eindhoven won the second, third and fourth period titles respectively, because they were league runners-up during those periods.
  2. ^ a b c Ten teams, two from the Eredivisie and eight from the Eerste Divisie, play for two spots in the 2015–16 Eredivisie, the remaining eight teams play in the 2015–16 Eerste Divisie. The season is subdivided in periods consisting of games 1–9, 10–18, 19–27 and 28–36. The top finisher in each period (that has not won a previous period) is a period winner and qualifies for the promotion play-offs first round even if they finish the season outside of the top nine.
  3. ^ a b c Youth teams cannot be promoted and cannot participate in the promotion play-offs.
