The league was founded on July 25, 2009 as the second division of the Puerto Rico Soccer League (PRSL), which was at that time the first division league of Puerto Rico. The Liga Nacional de Fútbol originally had 16 teams that were put into two groups of 8 (East Division and West Division) for the regular season.
The inaugural year began with Yabucoa Borikén taking on Maunabo Leones, as well as San Juan United taking on Club Deportivo Gallitos. Both games were held in Yabucoa. The Playoffs final had Maunabo Leones winning over Bayamón FC.
In 2010, the league size was increased to 21 teams divided into four divisions. The playoffs mixed the top teams in each division together.
