The 2021 Belarusian Premier League is the 31st season of top-tier football in Belarus. Shakhtyor Soligorsk are the defending champions, having won their second league title last year.

Teams[edit]

The bottom two teams from the 2020 season (Belshina Bobruisk and Smolevichi) were relegated to the First League. They were replaced by Sputnik Rechitsa and Gomel, champions and runners-up of the 2020 Belarusian First League respectively.

In the winter 2020/21, Gorodeya (who finished 13th last year) dissolved and left a Premier League spot vacant. Smorgon (6th-placed team of last year's First League season) were admitted to fill the vacancy, after Krumkachy Minsk (First League 3rd-placed team) were denied Premier League license, and another two clubs (Arsenal Dzerzhinsk and Lokomotiv Gomel) rejected the opportunity due to insufficient financing.
