Belarusian Premier League 2009 was the 19th season of top-tier football in Belarus. It started on April 4 and ended on November 8, 2009. BATE Borisov were the defending champions.

Team changes from 2008 season[edit]

Due to league reduction from 16 to 14 teams three relegated teams (Lokomotiv Minsk, Savit Mogilev and Darida Minsk Raion, who finished 14th, 15th and 16th in 2008 respectively) were replaced by only one team, the winner of 2008 First League Minsk.

Overview[edit]

BATE Borisov won their 6th champions title and qualified for the next season's Champions League. The championship runners-up Dinamo Minsk, bronze medalists Dnepr Mogilev and yet to be determined 2009-10 Cup winners qualified for the Europa League. Due to decision to gradually reduce Premiere League to 12 clubs (14 in 2009, 12 in 2010) three lowest placed teams (Gomel, Granit Mikashevichi
Smorgon) relegated to the First League.

^ The home team is listed in the left-hand column.
2The match of Round 9 originally finished 1–1, but was awarded to Granit with a score of 3–0. The reason is that for some time during the match Neman had five foreign players on the pitch, while the maximum number of foreign players a team can have on the pitch in the same time is four.[1]
Colours: Blue = home team win; Yellow = draw; Red = away team win.
