2016 Kazakhstan Premier League

The Kazakhstan Professional Football League (Kazakh: Қазақстан Кәсіпқой Футбол Лигасы), commonly referred to as Kazakh Premier League[1][2] or simply Premier League,[3] is the top division of football in Kazakhstan. The League is controlled by the Football Federation of Kazakhstan and was set up in 1992. The League is fed into by the First Division and starts in spring and finishes in late autumn because of the low temperatures in the winter, with each championship corresponding to a calendar year. The majority of matches have been played at weekends in recent seasons.

Name changes[edit]

  • Top Division (1992–2001)
  • Super League (2002–2007)
  • Premier League (2008–present)

Current teams (2015)[edit]

Soviet winners of republican level[edit]

Note that some teams such as Kairat Almaty participated in the upper leagues of the Soviet annual football competition. There was no solidly established independent Kazakh championship and the republican winner was conditionally picked by the Football Federation of Kazakh SSR.
