FC København claimed the title from Aalborg BK to complete a second double in five years, while the Danish Superliga will continue to be a 12-team, 33-round competition despite discussions about extending the season and introducing a championship play-off.
Champions: FC København
FCK clinched the title for the sixth time in nine seasons with a game to spare to end the challenge of Odense BK. Ståle Solbakken's side racked up 74 points out of a possible 99.
Cup final: FC København 1-0 Aalborg BK
Prior to wrapping up the championship, FCK lifted the cup at their own Parken Stadium with a goal from midfielder William Kvist on 31 minutes. Consolation for the deposed champions came with a European place despite finishing seventh in the league, and a man of the match award for Thomas Augustinussen.

Odensk BK – UEFA Europa League, third qualifying round
Brøndby IF – UEFA Europa League, second qualifying round
Aalborg BK – UEFA Europa League, second qualifying round
Randers FC – UEFA Europa League (Fair Play winner), first qualifying round
One to watch: Peter Utaka (Odense BK)
A lot of people in Danish football were concerned about OB's fate when Djiby Fall joined FC Lokomotiv Moskva in January but Utaka, a summer arrival from R. Antwerp FC, proved up to the challenge and blossomed in the spring.
Surprise package: AGF Århus
Considered to be among the candidates for relegation, a struggle to which they have become familiar in recent years, AGF surprised many people by finishing sixth.
Leading scorer: Marc Nygaard, Randers FC (16 goals)
"We won the matches which were important to win – such as the matches against Brøndby. We also won the cup final, so we proved that we have a winner's heart. I hope we can keep our squad together and that some of the players contribute even more in the future."
FCK coach Ståle Solbakken.
