The Eerste Divisie 2009–10 is the 54th season of the Eerste Divisie since its establishment in 1956. Last year's winners were VVV-Venlo; they, with runner-up RKC Waalwijk, after a promotion/relegation playoff win over De Graafschap, were promoted to the Eredivisie. Twenty teams take part in the 2009-2010 season: eighteen from the 2008-2009 season and relegated teams FC Volendam and De Graafschap. The season's champion will be promoted to the Eredivisie, while eight other teams, the second- through fifth-place finishers and period winners, will face the Eredivisie's sixteenth- and seventeenth-place finishers in promotion/relegation playoffs. For the first time since 1971, Eerste Divisie clubs will also face relegation; the last- and second-to-last-place teams will relegated to the new Topklasse, in which will play the best teams from Dutch amateur football. The 2009–10 Eerste Divisie is sponsored by the Belgian beer brand Jupiler and so the official name of the league is Jupiler League.

The league started with twenty teams, but was reduced to nineteen in January 2010 following the disbandment of debt-ridden HFC Haarlem. All league games involving HFC Haarlem were cancelled and the number of team that will be relegated was consequently reduced to one.
