Football league season
The 2015 V.League 1 (known as the Toyota V.League 1 for sponsorship reasons) season was the 59th season of the V.League 1, the highest division of Football in Vietnam. The season began on 4 January 2015 and finished on 20 September 2015.
Changes from last season
The following teams have changed division since the 2014 season.
In season 2015, a team standing on the 14th position was relegated to V-League 2. There was no play-off match as usual between team standing on 13th at V-League 1 and the second-position team at V-League 2.
Also, one club was only allowed to register 2 foreign players plus one naturalized player. Becamex Bình Dương and Hanoi T&T could register one more AFC player due to the qualification for AFC Champions League.
Đồng Tháp were promoted after winning the 2014 V.League 2 championship, but in November 2014 they decided to withdraw from the league altogether. They later revered their decision once sponsorship was found to fund the side for the coming season.
