The 2009–10 Coupe de la Ligue was the 16th edition of France's league cup, organized by the LFP. The defending champions were Ligue 1 club Bordeaux who defeated second division club Vannes 4–0 in the 2009 final. The competition began on 25 July 2009 and the final was held on 27 March 2010 at the Stade de France. The winners of the Coupe de la Ligue will qualify for the third qualifying round of the UEFA Europa League 2010–11. Ligue 1 club Marseille won the competition by defeating fellow first division club Bordeaux by a score of 3–1 in the final, thus giving them their first trophy since 1992.


On 29 June 2009, the Ligue de Football Professionnel board of directors announced that France Télévisions will be the official provider of Coupe de la Ligue coverage for the next three seasons.[1]

For the 2009–10 Coupe de la Ligue season, six clubs will be exempted until the Round of 16, the top 5 Ligue 1 finishers from the 2008–09 season and the winner of the 2008–09 Coupe de France. These teams earned exemption by virtue of qualifying for European competitions this season. Previously, only two clubs were exempted, the Ligue 1 champions and the runners-up. The six clubs that are exempted this year are Bordeaux, Marseille, Lyon, Toulouse, Lille, and Guingamp.

The draw for the preliminary round, 1st round, and 2nd round was determined on 8 July.[2]
