The 2009–10 Super League Greece season is the fourth since its establishment. The league consists of 16 teams. Participants are the 13 best teams from the 2008–09 season and three teams that have been promoted from the Beta Ethniki. On 11 April 2010, Panathinaikos won 2–0 against Iraklis to secure their 20th Greek title and their first in six years.[1]

Changes from 2008–09[edit]

Promotion and relegation[edit]

Teams promoted from 2008–09 Beta Ethniki:

Teams relegated to 2009–10 Beta Ethniki:

Other changes[edit]

Due to Greece having ascended in the UEFA league coefficient rankings,[2] the 2009–10 champions will enter 2010–11 UEFA Champions League at the group stage instead of the third qualifying round. Every other European spot remains unchanged, meaning that the winner of the European play-off group will reach the third qualifying round of the Champions League while the runners-up and third-placed team of this group will enter 2010–11 UEFA Europa League.

Play-offs[edit]

In the play-off for Champions League, the teams play each other in a home and away round robin. However, they do not all start with 0 points. Instead, a weighting system applies to the teams' standing at the start of the play-off mini-league. The team finishing fifth in the Super League will start the play-off with 0 points. The fifth placed team's end of season tally of points is subtracted from the sum of the points that other teams have. This number is then divided by five to give the other teams the points with which they start the mini-league.

The teams started the play-offs with the following number of points:

  • Olympiacos – 4 points ((64–46) / 5 = 3.6, rounded up to 4)
  • P.A.O.K. – 3 points ((62–46) / 5 = 3.2, rounded to 3)
  • AEK Athens – 1 point ((53–46) / 5 = 1.4, rounded to 1)
  • Aris – 0 points ((46–46) / 5 = 0)
