Vanuatu v Niue Islands

5 posts in this topic

Crowd of around 3000, guessing that's quite good? What's the league scene like in the 3 countries mentioned above?

The ground only holds around 5,000, and last year it was packed out, plus all the vantage points around the ground.

 

This year seems like again all around the ground was packed out as well, just the increase in prices for the match may have just been a little too much too soon.  That and Greece was a bit of a more appealing opponent than Niue.   To provide some context as to why the small venue, the population of Port Villa in Vanuatu is only 44,040.

Isn't the population of Niue something like just under 3000?

Approximately 1,400 according to Wikipedia. Vanuatu has over 220,000.
