The 2009 Primera División del Fútbol Profesional Chileno season is the 78th season of top-flight football in Chile. The season is composed of two championship: the Torneo Apertura & Torneo Clasura.

Format changes[edit]

The format for 2009 remains largely the same as 2008, except for the advancement to the Playoff Stages. Groups will no longer be used to determine who advance to the next stage. Instead, the top-eight teams in Classification Stage will advance.

International qualification changes[edit]

Qualification to the Copa Libertadores remains the same, as well as qualification to the Chile 1 spot in the Copa Sudamericana. The Chile 2 spot will be contested between the second-best team in the first stage and the 2008-09 Copa Chile winner. The winner of the single match will qualify to the 2009 Copa Sudamericana.

Team information[edit]

The number of teams were reduced starting with this season from 20 to 18. Antofagasta, Osorno, Melipilla, and Deportes Concepción were relegated last season to the Primera B. They were replaced by Municipal Iquique and Curicó Unido.
