The 2009 COSAFA Cup is the 13th edition of the football tournament that involves teams from Southern Africa.

South Africa had originally expressed an interest in hosting the 2009 and 2010 events but later reneged[1] and Zimbabwe was given the task to host the tournament.[2]

Madagascar were to take part in the competition as the fourth team in group A, but withdrew.[citation needed] South Africa and Angola will take part with a Development XI and an U-20 squad respectively, and their matches will not be counted as A internationals by FIFA.
