Football: Gibraltar will play in Wild Cup in Germany 2006

It's official. Gibraltar will be competing not against the might of Brazil, Argentina, Spain, England, or even Germany. They will in fact be playing in the Wild Cup in Hamburg Germany, against the might of Zanzibar, Greenland and Tibet. All these nations have, like Gibraltar, also been excluded from participating in World Cup qualifiers, due to political reasons.

This is a fantastic opportunity for the Gibraltar Football Association (GFA) to further their aspirations of becoming a FIFA member. The exposure of this event will surely get catch the attention of a large audience, especially as Germany will be inundated with camera crews covering the 2006 World Cup.

Gibraltar will be playing in the group stage against Tibet and another team, which has as yet not been named. Greenland, however have been pipped to be the winners of the competition, despite not even having an artifical grass pitch as Gibraltar has, which meets FIFA's criteria.
