Team changes from 2017 seasonEdit
Two best teams of 2017 Belarusian First League (Luch Minsk and Smolevichi-STI) were promoted to Belarusian Premier League. They were replaced by two lowest placed teams of 2017 Belarusian Premier League table (Slavia Mozyr and Naftan Novopolotsk).
In March 2018, Torpedo Minsk were granted additional promotion to Belarusian Premier League to replace Krumkachy Minsk (who failed to obtain a Premier League and were demoted to the Second League). Torpedo were not replaced any other team due to the lack of applicants, and the league was reduced to 15 clubs for the season.
