The 2015 season is Santos Futebol Clube's hundredth third season in existence and the club's fifty-sixth consecutive season in the top flight of Brazilian football. As well as the Campeonato Brasileiro, the club competes in the Copa do Brasil and the Campeonato Paulista.


On 13 December 2014, Modesto Roma Júnior was elected the new president, after winning by 1,329 votes. On 5 March 2015 manager Enderson Moreira was sacked, and the assistant Marcelo Fernandes was appointed as interim; the latter was definitely appointed as manager seven days later.

On 3 May 2015, Santos was crowned champions of Campeonato Paulista after a three-year absence, after defeating Palmeiras by 2–1 in the finals (2–2 aggregate score, 4–2 on penalties). On 9 July, with the team in the relegation zone, Fernandes was replaced by Dorival Júnior, who returned to the club after nearly five years.

In October, Santos entered in Campeonato Brasileiro's G-4 after a five-year "drought" (precisely 187 rounds). The club also reached the year's Copa do Brasil finals, again facing Palmeiras in a two-legged tie; it was also the first final of the tournament disputed by two clubs from the São Paulo state.
