The 2008-09 Azerbaijan Premier League is the 17th season of Azerbaijan Premier League, the Azerbaijani professional league for association football clubs, since its establishment in 1992. Inter Baku were the defending champions, having won the previous season.

Teams

FK Gänclärbirliyi Sumqayit and ABN Bärdä were relegated after finishing the previous season in 13th and 14th place, respectively. They were replaced by the champions of the two groups in the Azerbaijan First Division, Bak?l? Baku and MOIK Baku.

On 8 July 2008, FK Masall? withdrew their participation from the league, citing competitional and financial problems as reasons.[1] Although it was unclear as of 21 July if the Azerbaijan Football Federation would be naming a substitute or if the championship would start with just 13 teams, shortly thereafter AFFA named FK NBC Salyan to replace Masall? in top league.[2]

On 31 October 2008, FK NBC Salyan changed their name to FK Mughan.[3]

Stadia and locations

1Karabakh played their home matches at Surakhani Stadium in Baku before moving to their current stadium on 3 May 2009.[4]
