The 2004–05 Libyan Premier League was the 37th edition of the Libyan Premier League, the top tier of Libyan football organised by the Libyan Football Federation. The season started on September 10, 2004,[1] culminating on July 12, 2005.[2] Al Ittihad secured their 11th league title, with newly promoted Urouba finishing as runners-up and champions Al Olomby only managing to finish 3rd.

The season contained 14 sides, who each played each other twice. However, after Nasr and Ahly Tripoli's expulsion from the league on May 9, 2005, all matches that were played against these two clubs were cancelled.
