2009–10 Premier Academy League
Champions Arsenal U18s

The 2009–10 Premier Academy League Under–18 season is the thirteenth edition since the establishment of The Premier Academy League, and the sixth under the current make-up.

All teams played the other teams in their group twice and play 10 inter-group fixtures, producing 28 games a season. Eight of the inter-group games were played against teams in their 'paired group' (i.e. A–B and C–D are the paired groups), whilst the remaining two games comprise one game against a team in each of the two remaining groups. Winners of each group qualify for play-offs.

Arsenal U18s defeated Nottingham Forest U18s 5-3 in the play-off final at the Emirates Stadium and won the title for the second season in a row.
