Team changesEdit

Other TeamsEdit

On May 29, 2019, Anzhi, which was relegated to FNL at the end of the 2018–19 Russian Premier League season, recalled their appeal to the Russian Football Union on earlier RFU's decision to deny them the FNL license. Therefore, Anzhi did not play in the FNL in the 2019-20 season. Anzhi then passed the licensing procedure of the RFU, which allows them to participate in the PFL.[2][3]
