The 2019–20 Super League Greece was the 84th season of the Super League, the top Greek professional league for association football clubs, since its establishment in 1959. PAOK were the defending champions.

The season marks the first year that the league will include a Championship Round, whereby the top six teams at the conclusion of the regular season will play each other exclusively in order to determine the league champion. Similarly, those not in the championship round will play each other in order to determine the relegation positions.

Teams

Fourteen teams will compete in the league – the top twelve teams from the previous season, one team of play-off winner and one team promoted from the Football League. The promoted team was Volos. They replaced PAS Giannina, Levadiakos (both teams relegated after eight seasons back in the league) and Apollon Smyrnis (relegated after two years in the top flight).
