THE BAHAMAS

The reasons to visit The Bahamas are mainly the weather, the pristine (and sometimes pink) beaches and of course the swimming beach pigs.

Watching high class football has never been one of the reasons, though. Actually, watching the Bahamian national team play always meant watching one of the worst teams in the world. From 2018 to 2019 the team was ranked in the penultimate place of the FIFA World rankings, only putting San Marino behind them – although one could argue that San Marino would probably beat The Bahamas in a clash.

Currently, it seems that the Bahamas Football Association is trying to establish more professional structures, thus improving their national team. While the 0-4 and 0-7 defeats against St. Kitts & Nevis and Puerto Rico, respectively, aren’t really indicating a drastic change, but a respectable 0-0 draw against Trinidad & Tobago is encouraging.
