The 2009 Women's Lacrosse World Cup, the eighth World Cup played, is the preeminent international women's lacrosse tournament. The tournament was held at SK Slavia Praha Sport Centre in Prague, Czech Republicmarker from June 17 to June 27, 2009. USA defeated Australia in the finals to win the tournament.

Sponsoring organizations

The event is sponsored by the Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) and the Czech Women’s Lacrosse (CWL). This tournament was first held in 1982 and is held every four years. It is the first major event to be sponsored by the FIL. In August 2008, the men's international governing body International Lacrosse Federation merged with the former governing body for women's lacrosse, the International Federation of Women's Lacrosse Associations, to form the Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL).

The CWL also sponsors the 12th annual Prague Cup as an associated event. This tournament, held at the same venue as the World Cup, allows international club teams to compete at the same time in the open event.

Teams

Sixteen teams, the most ever, competed in the 2009 World Cup tournament. New entries include: Austriamarker, Denmarkmarker, Haudenosaunee, Irelandmarker, Koreamarker, and the Netherlandsmarker. The Haudenosaunee is the first team of women to represent the indigenous peoples of the Americas in the Women's World Cup. Lacrosse is seen as a sacred sport to the Iroquois and was traditionally a sport reserved for only men. In earlier tournaments, clan mothers protested the women's team playing the sacred sport and threatened to lay down on the field to prevent them from playing.

The tournament saw the return of defending gold medal winners Australia, as well as Canadamarker, Englandmarker, Germanymarker, Japanmarker, New Zealandmarker, Scotlandmarker, United Statesmarker, Walesmarker and the Czech Republicmarker.

Teams were split into three separate pools. Pool A (Australia, United States, England, Canada, and Japan) and Pool B (Wales, Scotland, Czech Republic, Germany and New Zealand) played round robins games against each team in their pool seeding for the quarterfinals. Pool C (Austria, Denmark, Haudenosaunee, Ireland, Korea and Netherlands) played in two mini-pools ((I)& (II)) to determine who will advance to the next round of play. The quarterfinals were followed by consolation games, the semifinals, and the bronze and gold medal games.
