Other facts: The Federated States of Micronesia are made of four states by the names of Chuuk, Kosrae, Pohnpei and Yap. Except of Kosrae every state has an own football association which competed in the Federated States of Micronesia Games in 2001. A combined team of all three islands (Chuuk, Pohnpei and Yap) competed as Federated States of Micronesia in the South Pacifc Games 2003. But after heavy defeats against the powerhouses of the region New Caledonia, Papua New Guinea and Tahiti the activity decreased to a point where no football was organised. In 2009 two English coaches Paul Watson and Matthew Conrad became coaches of the Ponhpei state team and in February 2010 of the whole country. After a couple of friendly games of Pohnpei in Guam against clubs from the local league and a Guam U-18 selection, Watson left Micronesia to search for a coaching position in Europe. But that doesn´t meen that football is no longer in existence. Pohnpei goes for the second season of the so called "Liberation Day Games" where the best team of the Pohnpei state will be crowned. In the mean while the FSMA (Federated States of Micronesia Football Association) are working hard for sending all four states to the Federated States of Micronesia Games 2011 to compete in football. At the same time FSMA aims full membership in OFC as well as FIFA. Maybe the first step will be taken in January 2011. This will be the month the next ordinary congress of the OFC will take place. Also the South Pacific games in New Caledonia are on the schedule in 2011. It is doubtful that Micronesia is already prepared for the international stage yet but maybe in the near future. They have close ties to the Guam FA which helps the Federated States of Micronesia to develop their football by sponsoring balls and kits.
