CONIFA World Ranking
Elba Island Football Association was born after the approval of CONIFA at the annual meeting of January 2020 in Saint Helier in Jersey (UK).
The island of Elba is located in the Tyrrhenian Sea between Tuscany and Corsica and is the largest of the 7 islands of the archipelago. It has about 30,000 inhabitants on a surface of 165 sq km spread over 7 municipalities, with Portoferraio with its 13,000, hidden inside its medieval walls, as its capital.
The city, that hosted Napoleon from 1814 to 1815, a small principality was also equipped with a flag that still today flies over the balconies of the town halls and with pride also by all the Elbans.
The island is equipped with a dozen sports facilities and today has 7 football associations, but feels the need more than ever to put together a squad from the players of all the teams, to join together and put aside all divisions as well as moving towards international competitions and to open up to other peoples and cultures.
