The 2015–16 Moldovan National Division (Romanian: Divizia Națională) is the 25th season of top-tier football in Moldova. The competition began in July 2015 and will end in May 2016. Milsami Orhei are the defending champions.

Teams

FC Petrocub Hîncești, runners-up of the 2014–15 "A" Division, promoted to the National Division for the first time since the 2002–03 season. Speranța Nisporeni, which became third in the 2014–15 "A" Division, returns to the highest level for the first time since the 1997-98 season. Both teams achieved their second consecutive promotion. The champions of the 2014–15 "A" Division, FC Sheriff-2, are not allowed to play in the same league as the first Sheriff team, and thus were not promoted.
