Football is by far the most popular sport on these 962 islands that are split into ten different regions. In 2001, their U-15 team was invited for the first time to take part in the Milk Cup in Ireland and the Liverpool Knowsley Cup in England. They were very successful. Some of their players have managed to turn professional with clubs in the Australian National League. Their best-known players are Dummins Menapi (Sydney United), Henry Luito Fa'arodo (Melbourne Knights) and Bartrum Suri (with top clubs in Tahiti, Fiji and Australia - including the Football Kingz based in Auckland, New Zealand). No doubt more talent will be discovered as a result of the development work being pursued in the youth sector.
