2005 Meistriliiga

Meistriliiga
Season 2005
Champions TVMK Tallinn
Top goalscorer Estonia Tarmo Neemelo (41)
2004
2006

FC TVMK's first title-winning Meistriliiga campaign came in some style with strikers Tarmo Neemelo and Ingemar Teever scoring most of the goals and veteran midfielder Andrei Borissov leading the team from midfield. Narva Trans finished in bronze-medal position after years of being fourth in the final table, while FC Flora have been busy rebuilding their squad and therefore not too upset by a disappointing fourth position finish. FC Kuressaare went out of the league via play-offs and Dünamo's defensive displays were awful and the team never seemed to have any kind of chance in staying up.

Tarmo Neemelo in the end scored 41 goals for the champions, and earned a move to top Swedish club Helsingborgs IF, Maksim Gruznov of Narva Trans scored 26 goals, Vjatšeslav Zahovaiko of FC Flora and Ingemar Teever for the champions scored 19 goals each. The latter secured a free transfer to Swedish outfit Östers IF.
