The 2009–10 C.D. Motagua season was the fifty-fifth season of the Motagua professional football lifetime. It consisted of two halves, the Apertura, which ran from July to November 2009, and the Clausura, which ran from January to May 2010.[1]

Apertura[edit]

During the preseason, several members of the team were poisoning presenting stomach pain and four of them were interned in a clinic. Iván Guerrero, Johnny Leverón, Romel Murillo and Carlos Padilla, were the players that were taken to the hospital due to severe dehydration. The rest of the team took a medical evaluation at the headquarters of the club. Following this incident, the coach Juan de Dios Castillo has suspended training for a couple of days.[2]
