The 2009 season of the Meistriliiga, the first level in the Estonian football system, is the 19th season in the league's history. It started on 7 March 2009 and will end on 10 November 2009. The defending champions are Levadia.

Changes from the previous season

TVMK were disbanded after the end of the previous season.[1] Hence Vaprus, who originally were to be directly relegated, faced Esiliiga side Paide LM in a relegation play-off series for one spot in Meistriliiga 2009. With an aggregate 5–5, Paide LM won the promotion play-off against Vaprus on the away goals rule and play their first season in Estonian top division. Tallinna Kalev, who originally were to participate in the relegation series, were spared.

Kuressaare earned promotion to the 2009 Meistriliiga after finishing in second place in the 2008 Esiliiga; champions Levadia II were not eligible to be promoted.

JK Maag Tammeka Tartu changed their name to JK Tammeka Tartu following the retreat of a major sponsor.[2]
