The Clausura 2010 season (officially known as Torneo Clausura 2010) was the 24th edition of the Primera División de Fútbol Profesional since its establishment of an Apertura and Clausura format. Isidro Metapán won the tournament, claiming their fourth title in history. The season began on January 9, 2010 and concluded on May 23, 2010. FAS were the defending champions, having won the Apertura 2009 and clinching the first of two salvadoran spots for the 2010–11 CONCACAF Champions League. Isidro Metapán clinched the other spot. Like previous years, the league consisted of 10 teams, each playing a home and away game against the other clubs for a total of 18 games, respectively. The top four teams by the end of the regular season took part of the playoffs.

Municipal Limeño was tied for penultimate club for the 2009–2010 season. They had a 1-game playoff to determine who the penultimate club would be. Limeno lost that match, designating it as the penultimate club of the 2009–2010 season, and thus, having to partake in a relegation playoff against the 2nd division runner-up. Limeno would lose this playoff and thus get relegated to the 2nd division for the 2010–2011 season.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Alacranes Del Norte officially made the Estadio José Gregorio Martínez as their new home stadium after moving to the city of Chalatenango from Nejapa. Polideportivo Victoria Gasteiz served as their home stadium in previous seasons, however due to a stadium loan dispute with local officials, they decided to move the club to the city of Chalatenago and renamed the club to Alacranes del Norte (scorpions of the north) or also (northern scorpions) due to their new city's geographical location.
