British Virgin Islands

World Cup Qualifier between the British Virgin Islands and the US Virgin Islands, 2011.

The British Virgin Islands are a small collection of islands in the Caribbean with a population of just 22,000. In 2000 they appointed a new coach, they did not realise at the time that their new coach was just 21 years of age, younger than the majority of the players that he was in charge of. During his short spell in charge they won matches against Antigua and St Martin and the BVI team began to make it's way up the rankings. The coach, Andre Villas-Boas left after just a year in charge to take be Jose Morinhos understudy at FC porto. He is now the manager of Chelsea.

British Virgin Islands - Home - 2011

As part of my project I email every football association every couple of months. I must have e-mailed the British Virgin Islands at least 6 or 7 times before I got a tip-off from my friend Daniel that he had received a positive reply. Sure enough I got a response direct from the FA who sold me these beautiful shirts.
