The 2008–09 Druga HNL (also known as 2. HNL) season was the 18th season of Croatia's second level football since its establishment in 1992. Croatia Sesvete were league champions and were promoted to Prva HNL at the end of the previous season.

The league featured 16 clubs, playing in a double round robin league system. The season started on 23 August 2008 and ended on 30 May 2009.

Changes from last season[edit]

The following clubs have been promoted or relegated at the end of the 2007–08 season:

Notes[edit]

  • 1 Hrvace had won the 3. HNL South but didn't obtain a license for competing in Druga HNL, while second-placed team Zagora didn't even requested one. Because of this, third-placed Junak Sinj qualified automatically for promotion.[1]
  • 2 Lokomotiva, as the 3. HNL West runners-up, qualified for the two-legged promotion playoff, which would have taken place between second-placed teams of 3. HNL East and West Division. As the 3. HNL East runners-up Grafičar Vodovod didn't get the license for Druga HNL, third-placed Virovitica qualified for the playoff. However, their board of directors decided to withdrew five days before the first match. Because of this, Lokomotiva were automatically promoted to Druga HNL.[2]

In a two-legged promotion/relegation playoff between Inter Zaprešić (as 11th placed 1. HNL team) and Hrvatski Dragovoljac (as 2. HNL runners-up), the former kept their Prva HNL status by beating Hrvatski Dragovoljac with 2–0 on aggregate (2–0, 0–0).
