General Secretary Visits Vava’u

The scoping visit is to meeting Vava’u football officials, stakeholders and pave the football development pathway forward for the island to a professional standard in terms of infrastructure, personnel, and the game itself.
“ The purpose of my visit is to see first hand the achievement to date in terms of football developments here as Tonga Football Association strives to achieve its vision of making football Tonga’s number one sport in 2020, that’s about ten years from now and the idea is to ensure all working progress is steered towards achieving our goals and vision where we can say football is Tonga’s number one sport in 2020. Not only that, but we are currently conducting a Just Play workshop for teachers and those who are interested in carrying out Just Play in their communities for kids between the age of 6-12 years and the concept is for them to have fun and encourage healthy lifestyle and I am happy to be here” Aho said.
Aho said he is pleased to see that football is alive and well in Vava’u and has prioritized developments for the island for the benefit of all clubs, players, officials and members of Vava’u Football Association.
“The football development in Vava’u is at a similar stage as Tongatapu, but I believe Tonga Football Associations vision is more achievable in Vava’u then in Tongatapu and we wont spare any resources and assistance to ensure Vava’u achieves our goal of making Football Tonga’s number one sport in 2020” Aho added.
According to the General Secretary, as Tonga prepares to send a women’s and men’s national teams to the Pacific Games in New Caledonia later this year, selection and trial process for Vava’u will be conducted in June this year.
