Split into two groups of six playing each other twice after all twelve clubs had already played each other twice, the Belarusian Premier League had a total of 198 matches for an average attendance of 1,853 – on a par with the English Conference. This makes Belarus 65th in the world and 31st in Europe. BATE Borisov were best supported, the only team to average 5,000+ and also the only one to draw a five-figure gate all season, 11,509 being the best.

5964 BATE Borisov
3099 Gomel
2544 Dinamo Minsk
1806 Torpedo Zhodino
1381 Dnepr Mogilev
1368 Slutsk
1363 Neman Grodno
1206 Naftan Novopolotsk
1100 Dinamo Brest
1083 Shakhtyor Soligorsk
774 Belshina Bobruisk
544 Minsk

The bottom team earned a reprieve as due to an increase to fourteen clubs in the top division this season there was no direct relegation. Two came up and there was a play-off between bottom in the Premier and third-placed on the First League (won by Vitebsk of the First League).

The sixteen clubs in the First League play each other twice for a total of thirty games each and 240 in total. The average of 522 makes it 42nd = in the rankings. Just one club was relegated and three promoted to keep the format intact for 2014-15.

1523 Vitebsk
907 Slonim
879 Slavia-Mozyr
740 Khimik Svetlogorsk
680 Volna Pinsk
551 Smorgon
496 Rechitsa-2014
407 Bereza-2010
393 Granit Mikashevichi
370 Lida
335 Gorodeya
298 Smolevichi-STI
247 Gomelzheldortrans
223 Zvezda-BGU Minsk
155 Minsk -2
143 Isloch Minsk Raion

The third level Second League is regionalised and numbers vary from year to year. I have no details for this level.
