Iraqi Premier League
Season 2008–09
Champions Erbil
(3rd title)
Top goalscorer Ahmad Salah
(15 goals)

The 2008–09 season was the 35th edition of the competition. The name of the league was changed from Iraqi Premier League to Iraqi Premier Division. It started on 1 November 2008 and ended on 16 July 2009. 27 teams from all over the country competed for the title. Erbil won the title by defeating Al-Najaf in the final via penalty shootout after a goalless draw. It was Erbil's third league title in a row. The two teams would have qualified for the 2010 AFC Cup, but were disqualified due to FIFA's suspension of the Iraq Football Association.

The 2008–09 season is the only season in history where not a single one of Baghdad's Big Four clubs (Al-Shorta, Al-Quwa Al-Jawiya, Al-Talaba and Al-Zawraa) finished in the top four.[1][2]
