Changes from 2008Edit

Team changesEdit

Energetik-2 were relegated to the First Division after finishing in 14th place. FC Atyrau, who originally were going to be demoted as well, were spared because of the withdrawal of Alma-Ata in December 2008.[1]

Kazakhmys and Taraz finished the 2008 season of the First Division in first two places and were therefore promoted to the Premier League.

After the withdrawal of Alma-Ata, the club merged with fellow Almaty team Megasport to create a new side called Lokomotiv. The club is based in Astana.[2]

On 20 January 2009 Kairat voluntarily withdrew from the league because of financial reasons.[3] On the same day FC Astana-64 also withdrew due to unpaid debts.[4]

Esil Bogatyr were renamed Kyzylzhar.[5]

On 29 January 2009, after two withdrawals, one club merger and one name change, FFK board finally decided that the 2009 season would feature 14 instead of 16 teams.[6]

On 2 March 2009 Kazakhmys withdrew from the league due to financial difficulties caused by global economic crisis. Since there was no time to find a replacement or take any action, FFK board decided that there would be only 13 teams participating in 2009 season of Kazakhstan Premier League.[7] However, on 5 March 2009 Kazakhmys addressed a letter to FFK revoking their decision and stating that they would guarantee financing of the club to participate in the Premier League.[8]

Structural changesEdit

On 20 March 2009, FFK board decided that the 2010 season will feature 12 clubs.[9] The bottom three teams will be directly relegated while the 11th-placed team will play a relegation play-off against the runners-up of the First division.[10]
