  • Top 4 qualify to final round.
  • The match between Platense and Hispano from Round 18 was not played due to lack of interest.

On 2 May, Honduras was awarded a 3rd spot in the 2009–2010 CONCACAF Champions League due to lack of adequate stadia in Belize. The 3rd spot would go to the short tournament runner-up with the highest overall season points total. Because of Real Espana's overall season point total of 68 being highest in the league, they clinch a spot in the 2009–2010 CONCACAF Champions League. Already a runner-up from Apertura 2008, it is guaranteed that the Clausura 2009 runner-up would not have a higher overall season point total than Real Espana. At this point, a bye to the Group Stage of the 09-10 CONCACAF CL is still up for grabs.
