Results[edit]

Teams in the 2014–15 season played each other three times, with the season starting 19 September 2014. For each match a home and an away team was named, however all matches were played at Victoria Stadium[2]

Premier Division play-off[edit]

In the previous Gibraltar Premier Division season, promotion and relegation deciding a place in the Premier Division for the following year was determined by a play-off match. A play-off match at the end of the current season was planned to be played between the 7th placed team from the 2014–15 Premier Division and the 2nd placed from the 2014–15 Second Division. The winner of the match would have earned a spot in the 2015–16 Gibraltar Premier Division.[2] However, no relegation match took place as the Premier Division expands to 10 teams for next season.[3]
