The US Virgin Islands national football team only played their first international match in 1998. They do not have their own national football stadium. Football is actually only the third most popular sport in the country. They began attempting qualification for FIFA world cups in 2002 and have not yet been successful.
The islands have a population of just over 100,000 with the primary economy being tourism. The islands themselves are in the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. They are on the border of two tectonic plates so suffer from natural disasters such earthquakes. This is coupled with the threat of hurricanes. All citizens of the US Virgin Islands are United States citizens although they cannot vote in presidential elections.
The US Virgin Islands national football team, nicknamed the The Dashing Eagle, is still an emerging nation is the world of football. They do not have a long history having only taken part in the last few world cups. With the news that the country is building a new multi-million pound sport centre, but not including a national football stadium, it is hard to see the team growing in the near future.
