Brazil Soccer Confed Cup Uruguay Tahiti

The Tahitian league is the only top division in the world that awards points to the losing side. Contested by 11 teams, the Tahitian Super Ligue Mana offers four points for a win, two for a draw and one for a defeat.

The FA director Charles Ariitoma explained the logic behind the system to ESPN Brazil:

“We just don’t want anyone to be sad. With this system, even if a team loses every game, they won’t be on zero points at the end of the season. Football, first of all is joy.

“Since we adopted the new system, the games have gained more intensity. This has improved our football and also our national team.”

Apparently the only way a team can end the day with zero points in the bag is if they don’t turn up.


  1. Evryfn abt the countri is just messed up

  2. technically, the the team with the fewest wins can win the league and the team with the highest wins can get relegated.. such fuckery in Tahaiti!
