Cook Islands Football Association
Starting in July 2023, our remit was to increase the talent pool of the Cook Islands Football Association (CIFA), scouring the globe to identify eligible players who could compliment the existing homegrown talent. Working with Academy Director, Jess Ibrom, and the existing ambitious staff at CIFA, we developed a 4 year strategy to support this objective.
Within the first few months, we found over 40 eligible players based in Australia, New Zealand and Germany and are continuing our search worldwide. We have already seen one of our scouted players make her debut for the senior women's team and expect to see many more debuts in the coming months.
