The 2009 Atlantic Cup, known as the Hotels of Jacksonville Atlantic Cup for sponsorship purposes,[1] was the first Atlantic Cup rugby league football tournament. It was held on November 14, 2009 at Hodges Stadium at the University of North Florida in Jacksonville, Florida.[2] This inaugural contest was a single test between the United States and Jamaica.[3][4] The event was deemed a success, and sponsors hoped the Atlantic Cup would become an annual event, with other developing rugby league nations such as South Africa and Japan competing.[2][5] It was followed by the 2010 Atlantic Cup, which featured the United States, Jamaica, and Canada.
