The 2019 Úrvalsdeild karla, also known as Pepsi Max-deild karla for sponsorship reasons, is the 108th season of top-flight Icelandic football. Twelve teams contest the league, including the defending champions Valur, who won their 21st league title in 2018. [1]

The season began in April 2019 and will conclude on 28 September 2019.

Teams[edit]

The 2019 Úrvalsdeild is contested by twelve teams, ten of which played in the division the previous year and two teams promoted from 1. deild karla. The bottom two teams from the previous season, Fjölnir and Keflavík, were relegated to the 2019 1. deild karla and were replaced by ÍA and HK, champions and runners-up of the 2018 1. deild karla respectively.
