Fabrice Pithia (born 7 May 1987) is a Mauritian football player who currently plays for Curepipe Starlight in the Mauritian Premier League and for the Mauritius national football team as a midfielder.

Senior career[edit]

Fabrice started his professional career along with his brother Fabien for Savanne SC in the Mauritian League in 2003, at the age of 16. In 2010, he moved on to play for Curepipe Starlight SC, while his brother stayed behind. After the 2011 Indian Ocean Island Games, in which Fabrice was leading scorer and one of the tournament's best players, he received interest from clubs both domestically and abroad, and has stated he is open to playing abroad.[1] Cypriot First Division club AC Omonia showed interest in signing Fabrice, along with his brother Fabien and fellow Mauritian international Gurty Calambé, but nothing came of it.[2]

International career[edit]

Fabrice has represented Mauritius internationally since 2006. He was called up to represent Mauritius in the 2011 Indian Ocean Island Games. He scored his first goal for Club M in their opening game against Maldives, a game which ended 1-1. He proceeded to score two more goals in each of the next two games of the group stage to lead Mauritius into the knockout stage.[3] Mauritius eventually made it to the final, but were beaten by Seychelles on penalties.
