Although football comes only second after the all-pervasive sport of rugby union in Tonga, it is all the rage among the island's younger population. It is very likely that football will overtake rugby union in the next few years. Tonga's greatest football triumph to date was their triumph in the first ever Polynesian Cup held in 1993 with victory over Samoa and the Cook Islands. Although local players have not yet made their mark on big leagues abroad, the Chief Executive of the Tonga Football Association, 'Ahongalu Fusimalohi, was appointed to the FIFA Executive Committee in 2002. The Tonga association is the only sports organisation on the island that employs full-time administrative and football staff.
The third project of the Tonga Football Association involved improvements to the association's headquarters and football academy. The focus was on improving the playing surfaces and the buildings. The aim is to be able to hold all local championship matches on the football academy pitches in Atele. The Goal Bureau approved this project on 2 June 2009.
