The 2009 IIHF World Championship Division III is an international Ice hockey tournament run by the International Ice Hockey Federation. The tournament was contested on April 10–16, 2009 in Dunedin, New Zealand. Mongolia withdrew from the tournament and therefore forfeited all of their games.

Venue[edit]

Dunedin Ice Stadium interior

All matches were contested at the Dunedin Ice Stadium, St. Kilda, Dunedin. This venue is the home ice of the Dunedin Thunder ice hockey team. The Dunedin Ice Stadium was used later the same month for the 2009 World Senior Curling Championships.
