  • Note:- Originally only 2 clubs will be promoted to Liga Super, however FAM decided to promote third-place clubs in order to balance the number of team to compete in Liga Super and Liga Premier which is 14 clubs for the next season. This decision also affected the relegation as ATM will not be relegated for 2009 season and will be joined by two promoted clubs from Liga FAM, the MBJB and T-Team along with Sarawak which has been relegated from 2007-08 Liga Super.
