CONIFA World Cup 2018 - North Cyprus

Post by Admin » Sat Mar 24, 2018 7:06 am

Who is CONIFA ?

The Confederation of Independent Football Associations is the governing body for non-FIFA affiliated football associations. In other words, football associations (teams) from non-recognized, or only partly recognized 'Countries' and regions, minority groups and sports-isolated territories from around the World. CONIFA is a non-profit organisation registered in Sweden.

Members of CONIFA :

Abkhazia, County of Nice, Delvidek, Donetsk, Ellan Vannin (Isle of Man), Felvidek (Upper Hungary), Franconia, Greenland, Karpatalja, Luhansk, Monaco, North Cyprus, Occitania, Padania, Raetia, Romani People, Sapmi, Skaneland, South Ossetia, Szekely Land, Transnistria, Western Armenia, Yorkshire, Arameans Suryoye, Iraq Kurdistan, Lezgians, Panjab, Rohingya People, Sarawak, Ryukyu, Tamil Eelam, Tibet, United Koreans of Japan, Uyghur, Barawa, Barotseland, Chagos Islands, Darfur, Kabylie, Matabeleland, Somaliland, Western Sahara, Zanzibar, Cascadia, Quebec, Kiribati and Tuvalu.

This year, the CONIFA World Cup is being hosted by Barawa which is located in Somalia. The Host heads the organising committee of this year's tournament - this doesn't necessarily mean that the competition is held in their domain. In fact, this year's CONIFA World Cup is being held in London because the Barawa Football Association represents members of the Somali diaspora in England. The tournament is set to take place between Thursday 31st May and Saturday 9th June.

The team from North Cyprus (2017 CONIFA European Football Cup runners-up) has been drawn into Group two along with Abkhazia (defending Champions), Felvidek and Tibet.
