FIFA 09 is the latest installment of Electronic Arts' FIFA Series of football video games. Developed by EA Canada, it is published by Electronic Arts worldwide under the EA Sports label. It was released on 2 October 2008 in Australia, 3 October 2008 in Europe, and 14 October in North America.[3] The N-Gage version was released on 18 November 2008.[4][5] An intended release of the game for the iPhone OS some time in 2009 was announced by EA on March 24, 2009.[6]

The demo was released on 10 September 2008 for PC[7] and on 11 September 2008 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.[8][9] The PS3 and Xbox 360 demos were identical with the exception of the stadium used with the PS3 featuring the FIWC Stadium and the Xbox 360 version using the new Wembley Stadium.

There are different covers for the regional versions of FIFA 09. All covers feature Ronaldinho with different players for each region: the North American version features Guillermo Ochoa and Maurice Edu; the UK and Australian covers feature Wayne Rooney; the German cover features Kevin Kurányi; the Italian cover features Daniele De Rossi; the Irish cover features Richard Dunne; the Czech cover features Petr Čech and Wayne Rooney; the French cover features Franck Ribéry and Karim Benzema; the Hungarian cover features Balázs Dzsudzsák; the Portuguese cover features Ricardo Quaresma; the Spanish cover features Gonzalo Higuaín; and the Swiss cover features Tranquillo Barnetta. Maurice Edu signed for Scottish team Rangers, which caused the cover to be altered to feature Edu in a US National Team shirt and Ronaldinho appeared in a Milan shirt, so that a club shirt was featured.[10]
