The 2020 Erovnuli Liga or Crystalbet Erovnuli Liga 2020 (formerly known as Umaglesi Liga) was the 32nd season of top-tier football in Georgia. Dinamo Tbilisi were the defending champions. The season began on 29 February 2020 and ended on 10 December 2020. The league winners will earn a place in the UEFA Champions League and the second and third-placed clubs will earn a place in the new UEFA Europa Conference League.
