The sport of football in American Samoa is governed by the Football Federation American Samoa (FFAS), the nations football association. It was founded in 1984, and affiliated to FIFA and to the OFC in 1998. It organizes the ASFA Soccer League (the national domestic football tournament) and the national team.
American Samoa is one of the weakest teams in the world, due to both its small population base and the overwhelming popularity of American football, basketball and baseball in the islands. In fact, it holds the distinction of suffering the largest loss in international football history, having been defeated by Australia 31-0 on April 11, 2001. American Samoa has never won a FIFA-sanctioned match. The team has only recorded one victory in its history over Wallis and Futuna Islands in 1983 (3-0), when both teams were not yet members of FIFA (Wallis and Futuna Islands still is not). As of December 2010 according to the FIFA World Rankings, American Samoa are ranked 203rd, or joint last, in the world of FIFA-sanctioned, international football.
