CONIFA World Ranking
Australian First Nations Mariya, the FA’s full name, represents the indigenous peoples of Australia.
The team made its international debut earlier this year in the ‘Clash of Culture’ series, when the Mariya men and women’s sides took on the Aotearoa Football side, representing New Zealand’s indigenous Maori people. The men’s side lost 3-2, while the women went down 5-0 to their Kiwi opponents.
Mariya joined CONIFA in November 2018.
