The Maltese Third Division 2009–10 (known as BOV 3rd Division 2009–10 due to sponsorship reasons) is the 10th season of the Maltese Third Division. It started in September 2009 and ended in May 2010 with the promotion play-offs. Naxxar Lions, Mgarr United and Marsa were relegated from the Maltese Second Division 2008-09.

The division is divided into two sections (Section A and Section B), both with 10 teams. The winners of each section will face each other in a play-off where the winner is crowned as champion of the division, but both teams will still be given the promotion.

Mgarr United won Section A, while Zejtun Corinthians won Section B after a decider with Naxxar Lions. In the Championship play-off Zejtun bet Mgarr 4-3 to win the Division.

In the promotion play-offs semi-final Gudja United beat Santa Venera, who finished 10th in the Second Division. In the final Naxxar Lions defeated Gudja on penalties to win promotion.

This was the debut season of Swieqi United.
