Team changesEdit

On 6 June 2009, FC Tiligul-Tiras Tiraspol announced that the club would dissolve, citing a lack of funds as the reason.[1] As a consequence, Academia Chişinău were spared from relegation. The 2008–09 season had already been absolved with only eleven teams after FC Politehnica Chişinău withdrew their participation just days before the scheduled start.

The two vacant league spots were filled with 2008–09 Moldovan "A" Division champions Viitorul Orhei and 11th-placed Sfintul Gheorghe, who bought their way into the top level.[citation needed]
