The 2008–09 Coppa Italia was the sixty-first season of the tournament. The competition started on 9 August 2008 and ended on 13 May 2009. The radically different format used in the 2007–08 Coppa was abandoned, with the new format more closely resembling earlier editions of the tournament.

The final was played between Lazio and Sampdoria. The match ended with Lazio winning 6-5 on penalties. The first 90 minutes ended in a 1-1 draw, and no goals were scored in extra time. It was Lazio's 5th Coppa Italia title, and first since the 2003-04 edition. With the win, Lazio earned a spot in the play-off round of the UEFA Europa League 2009–10.



In the previous year, the number of teams participating was reduced to only 42: the teams in Serie A and Serie B. For 2008–09, that number was expanded to 78 with the addition of 18 clubs from Lega Pro Prima Divisione (formerly Serie C1), 9 clubs from Lega Pro Seconda Divisione (formerly Serie C2) and 9 clubs from Serie D. Also, except for the semifinals, all rounds were one-leg fixtures. The one-game final played at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome, which was first adopted in 2007–08, remained.

  • First phase: one-leg fixtures
    • First round: 18 clubs from Lega Pro Prima Divisione, 9 clubs from Lega Pro Seconda Divisione and 9 clubs from Serie D were paired
    • Second round: All 22 clubs from Serie B were added to the 18 winners of the first round
    • Third round: Clubs 9–20 from Serie A were added to the 20 winners of the second round
    • Fourth round: 16 winners of the third round were paired
  • Second phase: one-leg fixtures (except semifinals)
    • Round of 16: Teams 1–8 from Serie A were paired with the 8 winners of the fourth round
    • Quarterfinals
    • Semifinals: two-leg fixtures
  • Final: one-leg fixture at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome

Throughout the tournament, home stadium advantage was given to the projected higher seed (i.e., assuming no upsets). In the two-leg semifinals, the projected higher seed played the second leg at home.
