The 2014 V.League 1 (known as the Eximbank V.League 1 for sponsorship reasons) season was the 31st season of the V.League 1, the highest division of Vietnamese football. The season began on 11 January 2014 and finished on 10 August 2014.

Team changes

The following teams have changed division since the 2013 season.

Rule Changes

The Vietnam Football Federation passed a resolution on December 5 that stated only one club was to face relegation to the 2015 V.League 2 at the end of the 2014 campaign. Two clubs from the 2014 V.League 2 will be promoted to the 2015 V.League 1 campaign.

Teams

Of the 13 participating teams, ten remain following the 2013 V.League 1. They are joined by three teams promoted from the 2013 V.League 2. Kienlongbank Kiên Giang withdrew from the 2014 campaign, citing financial issues.

Match-fixing scandal

Ninh Bình wrote to the Vietnam Football Federation (VFF) and to the Vietnam Professional Football Joint Stock Company to be allowed to stop their participation in the league and also the AFC Cup due to 13 players being involved in match fixing. They had played 8 league matches and were third from bottom at the time. Following their withdrawal from the league, all their results were declared null and void.

Rule Changes

Due to the match fixing scandal and withdrawal of Ninh Bình, it was decided that the bottom-placed team at the end of the season will take part in a play-off match against the third-placed team in the First Division for the right to play in the V-League next season.

Foreign players
