The FIBA Africa Championship 2009 Qualification occurred on various dates between 4 August 2008 and 31 May 2009. It was used to determine which African national basketball teams would qualify for the FIBA Africa Championship 2009. Teams competed with other teams in their respective "zones" for a spot in the Championship tournament.

Qualified Teams[edit]

Four teams qualified for the tournament before the qualification round took place. Ten more teams claimed spots in the tournament through Zonal Qualifying. One wildcard spot was reserved prior to the qualification round; because no team from Zone 7 registered, FIBA Africa gave out a second wildcard.
