NIFL Premiership 2014 - 2015

danske bank premiership logoThe NIFL Premiership is the top-level competition in Northern Ireland made up of semi-professional clubs.

The league winners qualify for the Champions' League while the teams finishing second and third go into the Europa League. A third Europa League place goes to the winner of the Irish Cup.

Ards were relegated after one season back in the top flight and replaced by Championship 1 winners, Institute. The relegation play off did not take place because the Championship runners-up, Bangor, do not possess a licence to play in the top level. The rules have now been changed and the highest placed team with a licence finishing in the top six will in future contest the play-off.
