The 2009 Intercity Football League season is the third since its establishment in 2007. It started from February 14, 2009.

At the end of 2008, the Chinese Taipei Football Association decided to merge the Enterprise Football League into the Intercity Football League, and therefore the latter became the highest-ranked football league in Taiwan.

Promotion and relation has been introduced since the 2009 season. According to the new regulations, the league includes two divisions. Division A consists of 6 teams, and the remaining teams participate in Division B. The last-placed team in Division A will be relegated to Division B while the champion of Division B will be promoted. The 5th-placed team in Division A and the runner-up of Division B will play two legs of playoff matches to determine who will play in Division A for the next season.

In addition, to strengthen the collaboration and the relationship between each team and the local community, new league regulations also required each team to be named after the administrative division in which they were located, and 2/3 of the players should be local residents of that division for more than one month.

Qualifications[edit]

Taipei City Tatung, Tainan County, and Kaohsiung Taipower automatically qualified for Division A after finishing in the top 4 places in the 2008 season. The remaining 3 Division A places were decided via a qualification tournament, which took place at the Pailing Sport Park from January 1 to January 4, 2009. There were 6 teams competing in the tournament: Miaoli County, Kaohsiung City, Kaohsiung City Yoedy (高市耀迪),[1] Yilan County, Taipei County Hanchuang (北縣悍創), and Tainan City. Taipei County Hanchuang, Kaohsiung City Yaoti, and Kaohsiung City qualified for Division A after finishing in the top 3 places in the qualification tournament.
