The Luxembourg National Division 2009–10 (also known as BGL Ligue due to sponsorship reasons) was the 96th season of top-tier football in Luxembourg. It began on 2 August 2009 and ended on 29 May 2010. F91 Dudelange were the defending champions.

Team changes from 2008–09[edit]

SC Steinfort and FC Avenir Beggen were relegated to the Division of Honour after finishing 13th and 14th in 2008-09. They were replaced by Division of Honour 2008–09 champions CS Pétange and runners-up FC Mondercange.

US Rumelange as 12th-placed team had to compete in a single play-off match against 3rd-placed Division of Honour side FC Erpeldange 72. Rumelange won the match, 2–0, and thus retained their National Division status.
