Eccellenza Abruzzo is the regional Eccellenza football division for clubs in Abruzzo, Italy. It is competed amongst 18 teams and the winner is promoted to Serie D (usually to Girone F). The clubs that finishes between the second and the fifth place also have a chance to gain promotion. The winner of the regional play-off is entered into a national round which consists of two matches.



L'Aquila also awarded promotion due to its inability to complete the league following the 2009 L'Aquila earthquake; the club was topping the league with Miglianico after Week 32, but was exempted from playing last two games
