Nauru 2014

Currently, no organised soccer is played on the island (it stopped in 2004 due
to lack of facilities).  Until then, the Black Brothers, a club representing the
Solomon community of the island, had been the most successful club.

In 2014, a match between refugees living on the island (41 in total) and a combined
Nauru team was organized in honour of World Refugee Day. This match was played
at Denig Oval.

Nauruans	 -  Refugees

This is perhaps the second time a Nauru football team has played a match, the
first reportedly coming from 1994 where a team of locals from the island won
2-1 over a squad of phosphate workers from the Solomon Islands.  It appears
that there has never been a official Nauru national football team.
