Do you have any information about football in this country? This is an independent country so they could join the FIFA...

There is a chance that Marshall Islands may play in the 2014 Micronesia Games in Pohnpei. I think this will be the earliest that we will see any team from the Marshall Islands play.

Very hard to find anything about the Marshall Islands. There are some tournaments on Majuro and youth clinics but most stuff is occasionally. Nothing about football on the Olympic Committee website. Can not imagine that football will be a regular on the schedule during the Micronesian Games. Maybe Pohnpei will be a one time competition with appearances from Pohnpei, Chuuk, Kosrae, Yap, CMNI and a Guam youth squad. Don´t see Palau, the Marshalls nor Nauru anytime soon.
Kiribati seem to eye OFC and FIFA membership.

Since I know the Pacific Islands have kind of a fan base in Non-FIFA communities like ours I want to share a reply from the Marshalls I received today. I´m starting to feel like a football missionary ;)

Dear Nico,
We don't have a soccer federation in the Marshall Islands, however through a public school program called the School Enrichment Program the coordinators organize and have been teaching soccer and other sports. Just last weekend I took a picture of kids in one of the villages playing soccer (with a flat soccer ball and in a very tight confined space) but they we're playing it and it was obvious they were playing it by the rules. The director of the School Enrichment Program is Rais Aho. I'm sorry I don't have his email address but I'm copying in our Olympic office as they may will his contact details.

In the past years groups have tried to organize regular/casual soccer games (mostly its foreigners) but it quickly dies down. No doubt, if there was a committed program for soccer the opportunity for the sport could take off — just from what I saw last weekend these kids were really enjoying the game.

Kind regards,
Suzanne


Doesn´t sound quite good I guess the debut of the national team will take even more time if we ever see one anyway.

Kwajalein played the HMS Daring in August 2013. No result unfortunately. This would be the closest to a "Marshall Islands national team" so far.

René Higuita emerges, merman-like from the depths, and performs a lobster kick to get the ball back on to the pitch, where it is dried off with a stuffed albatross before play recommences. René Higuita stays above water to record the quality of the throw-in on his trusty waterproof notepad. In his underground grotto, he spends his time using his subaquatic abacus to help formulate a league table of all the best throw-in takers on Kwajalein.

Well, you did ask!
