The Tahitian Ligue 1 is the top division of the Fédération Tahitienne de Football in French Polynesia. The league is currently named Ligue 1 Vini for sponsorship reasons.

Competition format[edit]

The competition is divided into a regular season and play-offs.[1] The regular season is a league format. At the end of the regular season the top 6 teams – and in past seasons the winners of the Moorea island league – enter a play-off league to determine the overall champions and qualifiers for the OFC Champions League.[2] Meanwhile, the lower teams enter a separate play-off league along with teams from Ligue 2 to determine promotion and relegation for the following season. The league has a point scoring system whereby teams are awarded 4 points for a win, 2 points for a draw and 1 point for a defeat. The only way a team cannot score a point is by failing to field a team. Although it is not unique, and is inspired from the French ranking system for every division below third tier, it has received publicity when the Tahiti national football team qualified for the Confederations Cup, and according to an interview of Charles Ariitoma, the President of the FTF, this was introduced because "we don't want anyone to be sad." [3]
