TeamsEdit

Despite the fact that Shirak finished last season in eighth and last place, it was decided that they should remain in the top flight for another season.[2] However, Kilikia decided not to participate in this year's Armenian Premier League competition, citing financial difficulties as a reason.[3]

Kilikia FC was replaced by 2010 Armenian First League champions Ararat Yerevan.
