Successfully defending home in the FIFA World Cup Qualifiers has been The Matao’s biggest accomplishments. With a (2-1-1) record, (2-0-1) at home, Matao has garnered respect on the global soccer scale.

In honor of their latest home defense, tying with Oman on September 8th, the GFA was invited to the Rotary Club meeting Thursday to present the Matao at the Westin Resort. Though no members of The Matao were present, their honor as guests were more than welcome.

“It’s a pride thing,” said Mariana’s Finance President Philip J. Flores on the Matao presentation. “We’re very proud of their accomplishments and we’ve faced some top level talent around the world. We invited them here because it’s obvious, we as an island are taking a lot of pride in what they’ve been able to accomplish.”

GFA’s media consultant Jill Espiritu put together a short film to present to those in attendance, highlighting all the Matao’s accomplishments since 2009.

GFA’s Joe Robert and Cheri Stewart also presented words to the audience explaining Matao’s upcoming events, namely their November 17th match against Iran at home. Guam lost 6-0 in Iran during their third WCQ match in a stadium full of only male attendees.

“We want as many people to show up as possible, especially our female audience members to spread diversity,” said GFA’s Roberto.
