Tahiti Football abandons season, no champion declared

The competition was suspended in March because of the Covid-19 outbreak but the club presidents now decided to abandon the 2019-2020 championship.

The Federation said it was difficult to make up the missed matches and decided to abandon all leagues.

To find Tahiti's two participants for the Oceania Champions League, a tournament will be organised in September involving the three top teams.

The three are As Pirae, AS Venus and AS Tiare Tahiti.


Tahiti beat Mexico to bounce back from Italy defeat

Following a disappointing 12-4 defeat to Italy in their opener, the Tikia Toa dominated from the outset with Gervais Chan-Kat scoring a brace—his second catching the eye with a display of close control combined with a calm finish—to lead the team to a crucial victory.

Mexico scored their first goal of the tournament in the third period of the match through Jose Vizcarra, but it ended up being mere consolation for Ramon Raya’s charges, especially after Tearii Labaste, Heimanu Taiarui and Patrick Tepa added three more in the final period for the Oceania champions.
