The 2009 Liga de Fútbol Profesional Boliviano season was the 33rd of Bolivia's top-flight professional football league. The season was split into two championships—the Apertura and the Clausura—and the Play-off

Format[edit]

The 2009 season will be divided into two championships, each with their own format.

Apertura

The Apertura championship will be a double round-robin league format. The team with the most points after the twenty-two rounds will be declared the champion.

Clausura[1]

The Clausura championship will be divided into two phases. The first phase will have the twelve team divided into two groups. The teams will play within each group, in addition to a cross-group rivalry (for example: Bolívar vs. The Strongest). The best three teams in each group will advance to the second phase. In the second phase, the best teams from each group will play the third best team from each group and the second best teams will play each other. The three winners of each match, plus the best loser, then play each other in the semifinals and will start of a two-legged single-elimination play-off that culminates in a final match-up. The winner of the final is the tournament champion.

The winners of each championship will earn a berth in the 2010 Copa Libertadores and the runners-up will earn a berth in the 2010 Copa Sudamericana.

Teams[edit]

The amount of team remains the same for this season. Guabirá was relegated at the end of the 2008 season to the regional leagues. They were replaced by Nacional Potosí.
