The Belarusian Premier League was organized in 1999. The first participants are: Dinamo Minsk, the only Belarusian from the former Soviet Top League, five teams from the lower echelons of the Soviet League system, and ten former competitors in Belarus, the SSR First League.
After the formation of the league, it was decided to change its schedule from a Soviet-style summer season to a European-style winter season. To perform the transition, the first season was shortened, consisting of a single round-robin tournament between 16 teams, ending in mid-summer. Due to the short season, neither team was released from the Premier League and was only promoted from the first league. There were 17 teams in the 1992-93 season, but returned to 16 teams the following season.In 1995, in late autumn and early spring, Belarus’s winter weather failed due to low weather and field conditions. The Tuti returns in the summer and the 1995 championship was again held as a single round-robin tournament. Has played every season since 1996 in the summer.
The number of competing teams has changed several times throughout the 2000s. In 2001, the league was reduced to 14, but in 2003 it was raised to 1 to.In 200 In, after the two teams returned before the start of the season, the league was once again reduced to 14 clubs, but again expanded to 11 16 teams in 2006. In the same year, it was decided to gradually reduce the number of teams, starting with 14 in 2009 and 12 after 2010. The 2012 season was played with only 11 teams due to the last-minute withdrawal of Partizan Minsk.
