Overview[edit]

In the 2007-08 Premier League, both Al-Irshad(finished 11th) and Al-Ahli Sidon (finished last) were relegated. They joined the Second Division along with Al-Riyadah and Al-Khoyol who were promoted to the Second Division from the Third Division in the 2007-08 season. Unlike the previous 3 seasons, no clubs pulled out before the season even started, a bonus for the league.

The 2-Group Round-Robin format was once again used in order to determine the 4 clubs to qualify for the promotion play-off group. The winner of the group would be automatically promoted to the Premier League for the 2009-10 Season. The runners-up would also be promoted to the Premier League.
