Team changes from 1992 seasonEdit
In order to play in Premier League, Dinamo-2 Minsk split from their parent team Dinamo Minsk into separate football club (although both teams remained the parts of the same organization) and changed their name to Belarus Minsk.
SKB-Lokomotiv Vitebsk changed their name to Lokomotiv Vitebsk prior to the season. Another four clubs changed their names during the winter break (Traktor Bobruisk to Fandok Bobruisk, Khimik Grodno to Neman Grodno, BelAZ Zhodino to Torpedo Zhodino and Metallurg Molodechno to FC Molodechno).
Dinamo Minsk won their 2nd champions title and qualified for the next season's Champions League. 1992–93 cup winners Neman Grodno qualified for the Cup Winners' Cup. Obuvshchik Lida and Torpedo Zhodino relegated to the First League.
