The 2015–16 Danish 1st Division season is the 20th season of the Danish 1st Division league championship, governed by the Danish Football Association.

The division-champion, the runners-up and the third placed team are promoted to the 2016–17 Danish Superliga because the Danish Superliga will be expanded to 14 teams from the beginning of the 2016–17 season.[2] The team in the 12th place is relegated to the 2016–17 Danish 2nd Divisions.

Notes:
  1. ^ FC Vestsjælland was deducted six point for financial irregularities.[18] On 9 December 2015 the club went bankrupt and withdrew from the league, which meant that the remaining games of the club would be made 3-0-victories for the opponent. The professional superstructure was dissolved, but the amateur section of the mother club continued playing in the lower regional levels, Zealand Series, as Slagelse B&I.[19]
