Team changes from 1992 seasonEdit

The winners of last season (Dinamo-2 Minsk) were promoted to Belarusian Premier League, which became possible after they split from their parent team Dinamo Minsk. No teams relegated directly from the Premier League as it was temporary expanded from 16 to 17 teams.

One team that finished at the bottom of 1992 season table (Stankostroitel Smorgon) relegated to the Second League. To compensate for Premier League expansion, they were replaced by two best teams of 1992 Second League (Smena Minsk and Albertin Slonim).

Luch Minsk and Orbita Minsk (who finished 12th and 15th last season) withdrew from the league to amateur lever due to lack of financing. They were replaced by ZLiN Gomel (Second League third-placed team) and Stankostroitel Smorgon (who were spared from relegation).

Before the start of the season Niva Samokhvalovichi changed their name to Niva-Trudovye Rezervy Samokhvalovichi and SKIF-RShVSM to AFViS-RShVSM Minsk. Kolos Ustye was renamed to Kolos-Stroitel Ustye during the winter break.

OverviewEdit

Shinnik Bobruisk won the tournament and were promoted the Premier League. Neman Stolbtsy and Stankostroitel Smorgon, who finished 15th and 16th respectively, relegated to the Second League.
