2000 Belarusian First League Wikipedia
Two best teams of 1999 Belarusian First League (Kommunalnik Slonim and Vedrich-97 Rechytsa) were promoted to Belarusian Premier League. Pinsk-900 and Vitbich-Dinamo-Energo Vitebsk relegated to the Second League.
Promoted and relegated teams were replaced by two newcomers from the Second League (Traktor Minsk and Luninets) and two teams relegated from Premier League (Molodechno and Svisloch-Krovlya Osipovichi).
Before the start of the season Kommunalnik Svetlogorsk were renamed to Khimik Svetlogorsk.
This season winners Molodechno were promoted to the Premier League. Four lowest placed teams (Traktor Minsk, Khimik Svetlogorsk, Veino-Dnepr and Polesye Kozenki) were initially relegated to the Second League, although Khimik Svetlogorsk later avoided relegation due to withdrawal of two other teams before 2001 season.
