The 2009 Peace Cup Andalucia was an invitational friendly football tournament. It was the 4th edition of Peace Cup and was held in Spain from 24 July to 2 August in the cities of Madrid, Seville, Málaga, Jerez and Huelva. It was the first time that the tournament has been hosted by a nation other than South Korea. The winners of the tournament were English side Aston Villa, who defeated Juventus of Italy in the final.[1] They succeeded Olympique Lyonnais who were the previous holders of the tournament, winning the 2007 edition.[2] It was one of seven 2009 pre-season friendly tournaments, the others being the Emirates Cup, the Barclays Asia Trophy, the World Football Challenge, the Wembley Cup, the Amsterdam Tournament and the Audi Cup.[3]

Host and Venues[edit]

Host country[edit]

After the previous three tournaments were held in South Korea, the Peace Cup Committee decided that the tournament would be hosted by another country. In 2007, the Peace Cup organizers were connected with Sports Ministry of Andalucia and Andalucia Football Federation, after the discussion with the Autonomous Community of Andalucia, they suggested the cities of Seville, Málaga, Huelva and Jerez to host the 2009 Peace Cup.[4]

On 19 December 2007, it was announced in a press conference in Seville that the number of teams would be increased to 12. It was also confirmed that Real Madrid and Sevilla would be playing in the tournament.[5] The Peace Cup committee continued to negotiate with other "big" clubs, by 13 April 2009, eight more participating clubs such as Juventus, Málaga, Lyon, Aston Villa, Celtic, Porto, Fenerbahçe, and LDU Quito, were announced.[6] However, Celtic and Fenerbahçe were forced to pull out due to conflicts with Champions League qualifying ties and they were replaced by Atlante[7] and Beşiktaş[8] respectively.

Venues[edit]

The official venue for the tournament was Andalusia. However, some matches were played in Madrid.[9]
