Competition format

The participating teams first play a conventional round-robin schedule with every team playing each opponent once "home" and once "away" for a total of 14 games. The league is then split up in two groups of four teams with each of them playing teams within its group in a home-and-away cycle of games. The top four teams compete for the championship. The bottom four clubs play for one direct relegation spot and one relegation play-off spot. Records earned in the First Round are taken over to the respective Second Round.[4]

Promotion and relegation from 2014–15

Inter Club d'Escaldes were relegated after last season due to finishing in eighth place. They were replaced by Segona Divisió champions Penya Encarnada d'Andorra.

UE Engordany, who finished last season in 7th place, and Segona Divisió runners up Atlètic Club d'Escaldes played a two-legged relegation play-off. UE Engordany won the playoff, 4–2 on aggregate, and remained in the Primera Divisió while Atlètic Club d'Escaldes remained in the Segona Divisió.
