2005 Belarusian First League was the fifteenth season of 2nd level football championship in Belarus. It started in April and ended in November 2005.


Team changes from 2004 season

Two top teams of last season (Lokomotiv Minsk and Vedrich-97 Rechitsa) were promoted to Belarusian Premier League. The promoted teams were replaced by two teams that finished at the bottom of 2004 Belarusian Premier League table (Lokomotiv Vitebsk and Belshina Bobruisk).

Vedrich-97 Rechitsa were eventually denied promotion after failing to obtain Premier League license. The team stayed in the First League.

Two teams that finished at the bottom of 2004 season table (Vertikal Kalinkovichi and Dinamo-Juni Minsk) relegated to the Second League. They were replaced by two best teams of 2004 Second League (Smena Minsk and Orsha).

Molodechno-2000 (who finished 13th last season) withdrew to the Second League due to insufficient financing. They were replaced by Vedrich-97 Rechitsa, who were denied promotion to Premier League and stayed in the First League.
