 Football Federation American Samoa
  
A territory with just 70,000 people and an area of 199km┬▓, American Samoa is traditionally strong in sports such as gridiron, basketball and baseball but football is starting to take over these popular pastimes. The strength of the game is at the youth level where Football Federation American Samoa (FFAS) has worked hard to establish competitions within schools. Under the tutelage of President Iuli Alex Godinet, FFAS is leading the way for sporting bodies in American Samoa in terms of organising tournaments for teenagers and school children. As a result of this newly-implemented structure, the number of boys and girls playing football has now exceeded even those more established codes.

FFAS held a founding congress in November 2007 where it was recognised that American Samoa had regained its credibility over a two-year normalisation period after the formerly-named American Samoa Football Association (ASFA) had been dissolved. American Samoa now has a strong foundation from which to grow football starting from the grassroots level. Looking at the elite level, American Samoa national teams still have some way to go to reach the level of other Oceania nations. But significant strides were made in the first phase of Oceania qualifying for the 2014 FIFA World Cup when reknowned Dutch coach Thomas Rongen led the national men's team to a historic victory over Tonga, the country's first ever win in World Cup qualifying.

The FIFA Goal Project was completed at Pago Pago Park in 2007 with new administration offices and playing fields allowing FFAS to increase football activities. The complex was significantly damaged by a powerful tsunami that struck in 2009 but, after a successful rebuilding phase, it was reopened by FIFA President Joseph S. Blatter during an official inauguration ceremony at the 21st OFC Ordinary Congress in January 2011.

Recent activity saw the territory play host to the 2014 OFC Champions League Preliminary which saw the top clubs from American Samoa, Samoa, Tonga and Cook Islands compete for a spot in the Pacific's premier club competition.
