The 2008 VIVA World Cup was the second VIVA World Cup, an international tournament for football, that took place in July 2008. The winners were Padania, who took home the Nelson Mandela Trophy. The tournament was organised by the Nouvelle Fédération-Board.

The defending champions and hosts were Sápmi. The competition, organized by the Sami people, took place from 7 to 13 July, in Gällivare, Sweden.[1]

Qualification[edit]

Due to the inaugural status of this tournament, applicants were admitted to the tournament without a qualification process. As an untested tournament the scheduling doesn't meet the organizational capacity of a billion dollar organization like FIFA.

Qualified teams[edit]

The men's teams that took part were:

Venues[edit]

As a small tournament, like its European counterpart in Europeada 2008, this VIVA World Cup was not expected to bring in the numbers and financial support of UEFA Euro 2008 earlier this summer; the stadia venues are thus rather small.

The hosts of the games were:[2]

Overview[edit]

Padania became the 2008 VIVA World Cup champions beating Arameans Survoye in the final 2-0. The hosts Sapmi, after coming 4th in the group stage, ended by as a lucky 3rd after winning the last edition. The Arameans Survoye team were the surprise of the tournament qualifying for the final at their first attempt. Iraqi Kurdistan, also debuting, finished 3rd in the group stage but lost in the 4th place play off to Sapmi. To round of the places, in a distant last position, having lost all of their group games, was Provence, a region of France.

In the inaugural women's tournament the hosts Sapmi came through after an aggregate 16-1 thrashing of Iraqi Kurdistan.
