Tembo the Elephant
Location of stadiums used in 2009 CECAFA Cup

Sudan was left out due to missing the deadline for the draw.[2]

French telecommunications company Orange agreed to sponsor the tournament.[3] Orange paid $175,000 USD for the privilege.

The Kenyan Government also paid $80,000 USD to sponsor the tournament. It is the first time in 15 years that the CECAFA Cup has been hosted in Kenya.

CECAFA unveiled tournament mascot Tembo, a friendly looking elephant in a black- and yellow-stripped jersey and orange shorts, standing with his left foot on a football. Tembo will spread the message "Uniting for Peace", the tournament's theme.

Television rights were sold to Kenya Broadcasting Corporation in partnership with South-African owned Super Sport.
