Rules for classification: 1) points; 2) goal difference; 3) number of goals scored
Denotes clubs that occupied top 4 places at the end of the first half of the season (17th week) and were seeded for 2009 Emperor's Cup. These clubs were automatically qualified for the tournament, while each of other JFL clubs had to go through the prefectural qualifier.
1 Must hold J. League Associate Membership and submit applications to J. League board by 30 September (club names shown in bold), finish no less than in fourth place and pass a final inspection by J. League to be promoted. V-Varen Nagasaki and Machida Zelvia, both associate members, announced that they would not submit applications for this year due to some unresolved problems pointed out by J. League at the preliminary review.[1]
2 Series' occurrence is dependent on the number of places available after promotions to J2.
3 Mitsubishi Mizushima F.C. submitted a letter to JFL headquarters on 30 September regarding withdrawal from JFL by the end of 2009 season regardless of their 2009 results due to "various factors including recent economic slump."[2] However, Chugoku Soccer League, one of nine Japanese Regional Leagues, declined to accept Mizushima as its 2010 league member because of their voluntary withdrawal from JFL. Therefore, the highest division which Mizushima will be able to play in 2010 season is Okayama prefectural league division 1.[3]
