The 2009–10 Azerbaijan Premier League is the eighteenth season of top-tier football in Azerbaijan. It began on 14 August 2009 and finished in May 2010. FK Baku are the defending champions.

The league is competed in two stages. The first stage consists of a regular home-and-away round-robin schedule for a total of 22 matches per team. The competition will then be split in half. However, each team will take over to the respective group only records earned against the remaining 5 teams from their second round group. The teams ranked first through sixth will play out the championship and the European spots while the bottom six teams will have to avoid one of the two relegation places.

Teams

MOIK Baku and Bakili Baku were relegated after finishing the 2008–09 season in the bottom two places. Since the Association of Football Federations of Azerbaijan did not grant a Premier League license to any of the teams in the Azerbaijan First Division,[1] the league size was reduced to twelve teams.
