The 2015–16 season is the 113th in the history of the Southern League since its establishment in 1894, from the 2014–15 season onwards, the Southern League is known as Evo-Stik League Southern, following a sponsorship deal with Evo-Stik.

The league constitution was announced on 15 May 2015.[1]

After the constitution was announced, Clevedon Town of Division One South & West were demoted because their floodlights were not to the required standard.[2] As a result, Ware were transferred to Division One Central from Isthmian League Division One North, Fleet Town and Petersfield Town were transferred from Division One South & West to Division One Central, and Burnham, Marlow and newly promoted Flackwell Heath were transferred in the opposite direction.

Flackwell Heath subsequently decided to refuse their promotion and stay in the Hellenic League.[3] Redhill, who had been relegated from Isthmian League Division One South, were offered Flackwell Heath's place, but they refused due to travelling and financial reasons.[4] Their position was then offered to Wessex League runners-up Winchester City, who accepted.[5]
