The 2014–15 Football League One (referred to as the Sky Bet League One for sponsorship reasons) was the eleventh season of the Football League One under its current title and the twenty-second season under its current league division format. The season began on 9 August 2014.

Bristol City won the league to return to the Championship after a two-year absence. They were unbeaten for the first 16 matches of the season and also finished with the best goal difference and best defence. MK Dons pipped Preston North End to 2nd place on the last day of the season after the Lancashire club lost at Colchester. But Preston were eventually promoted via the playoffs, defeating Chesterfield and Swindon 4-0 (on aggregate) and 4-0 respectively.

At the other end of the table, Yeovil Town followed their relegation from the Championship the previous season with another relegation. Leyton Orient were relegated after having contested the playoff final in 2013-14 (which they lost to Rotherham on penalties after being 2-0 up), and Crawley and Notts County were the final teams relegated to League Two for the 2015-16 season.
