The division-champion and runner-up will be promoted to the 2009–10 Danish Superliga. The teams in the 14th, 15th and 16th places will be divided between 2nd Division East and West, based on location.
On February 3, Køge Boldklub declared bankruptcy. As a result, they were docked three points and were suspended from the tournament. Furthermore, they will be relegated two levels in addition to the one they have clinched at the moment, making them participate in Sjællandsserien from the 2009–10 season.
On February 14, however, it was announced that First Division clubs Køge Boldklub and Herfølge Boldklub intended to merge their first teams to form HB Køge, and on March 14, the club was approved by the Danish FA.
