The 2014/15 Premier Liha(Ukrainian Прем’єр-ліга) was the 24th season of the highest Ukrainian league in football and the seventh edition under that name (previously: Vyshcha Liha, Eng. Supreme League). The season began on 25 July 2014 and ended on 29 April 2015.

The defending champions were Shakhtar Donetsk.

This year, the competition featured 14 participants. On 30 October 2013, Arsenal Kyiv went bankrupt and stopped playing.[1] The two teams from Crimea from the previous season, PFK Sevastopol and Tavriya Simferopol, were disbanded after the Crimean crisis and have since played in the Russian league system.[2][3] In their place should play the first two teams from the 2013/14 Perscha Liha, Olimpik Donetsk and FK Oleksandrija. PFK Oleksandrija cancelled their participation and have joined forces with UkrAchroKom Holovkivka under the new name FK Oleksandrija.[4]

Due to the ongoing crisis in eastern Ukraine, the teams from Donetsk and Luhansk had to play their home matches elsewhere. Shakhtar Donetsk played in Lviv, Metalurh Donetsk as well as Olimpik Donetsk in Kiev and Sorja Luhansk chose Zaporizhzhya.
