Promotion and relegation from 2008–09Edit

BFC Siófok and Rákospalotai EAC finished the season in the last two places and thus were relegated to their respective NB II divisions. Siófok ended a two-year stint in Hungary's highest football league while Rákospalota were relegated after four years.

Promotion to the league was achieved by the champions of the NB II Eastern Division, Ferencvárosi TC and by the runners-up of the Western Division, Lombard-Pápa TFC. Both teams return to the National Division after three-year absences. Lombard-Pápa capitalized on the denial of a NB I license for Western Division champions Gyirmót SE.[2]
