After the 2008 Gay Football/Soccer World Championship was held in London, the International Gay Lesbian Football Association (IGLFA) awarded the Federal Triangles Soccer Club of Washington DC the championship for next year. The tournament is scheduled to take place June 14- 21, 2009.

London otherwise saw close to 40 teams representing 13 countries. In the very well organised championship, Stonewall Lions beat Argentinian side SAF Gay 5-0 in the finals.
