The 2015 Belarusian Premier League was the 25th season of top-tier football in Belarus. It began on 10 April 2015 and ended on 8 November 2015. BATE Borisov were the defending champions, having won their 11th league title last year, and secured a 12th.

Format[edit]

Following the league expansion from 12 to 14 clubs, the league format returned to a regular double-round robin tournament with no second phase. Only one lowest-placed team was relegated and replaced by three best teams of First League, to expand the top level to 16 teams for 2016.

Teams[edit]

Two best teams of 2014 First League (Granit Mikashevichi and Slavia Mozyr) were promoted to the league, which was expanded from 12 to 14 clubs.

The last-placed team of 2014 Premier League (Dnepr Mogilev) were relegated after they lost relegation/promotion playoffs against First League third-placed team Vitebsk (who were promoted to replace Dnepr).
