The 19th Arabian Gulf Cup (Arabic: كأس الخليج العربي‎) was the nineteenth edition of the biannual Gulf Cup competition, and took place in Muscat, Oman, from 4 to 17 January 2009 and was won by Oman for the first time in its history,[1] in a penalty shootout against regional rivals, Saudi Arabia.

The 19th Arabian Gulf Cup marked as a milestone in the competition when it was broadcast for the first time in HD, and featured virtual graphics, such as distance between free kick barrier and the goal, 9.15 m circle for free-kicks, and off-side line detection with help from Al-Jazeera Sports.[2] Many praised Al-Jazeera for their excellent coverage of the competition, noting that the camerawork was very similar to UEFA Euro 2008.

The postponing of the competition[edit]

The 19th Arabian Gulf Cup was originally planned out to be held in 2008, but due to Cyclone Gonu damaging Muscat six months before the planned time of the event, it was then postponed to early 2009.

Teams[edit]

8 teams participated in the tournament.

The Draw[edit]

  • The draw was held in Oman on 29 October 2008.
  • Eight teams were divided into two groups, Oman (The host nation) was in group A, The UAE (The holder) in group B, while the rest of the teams were placed in a pot based on October 2008's FIFA ranking.
  • Oman played the opening match at Sultan Qaboos Sports Complex.
