With 146 clubs and 11,201 registered players, football is far and away the most popular sport among the 245,405 inhabitants on the island of Tahiti. The national association of the island nation annexed to France became a member of FIFA on the strength of its special status. Tahiti scored their greatest hit when they took Australia into extra time at the 2002 Oceania Nations Cup - but Australia snatched the golden goal for 2-1. Tahiti have celebrated many triumphs in local and confederation competitions since 1966. Marama Vahirua is their most famous footballer. He is making a very good name for himself in France with first-division club Nantes
The Tahitian Football Association is launching a youth academy, which will be co-financed by the Goal Football Programme, the association, public sponsors and private sponsors. The most talented Tahitians between the ages of 11 and 18 will benefit from full education (school and football).
