The Tonga Australian Football Association (TAFA) was founded on Australia Day (Jan 26) 2003 when Australian expatriates Tim Valente and Mark Korsten became involved in a vicious bragging competition. It was settled the next day at 7am with severe hangovers at Teufaiva (pronounced "TAFA FOREVER") Stadium.
A truce was called at approximately 7:12am, but not before a couple of hard-case pipehittin' Tongan's had come out of the stands with back-to-front baseball caps, goofy grins and a mouthful of "What gives man!"

"We're now living in a country where half the people were either born overseas or have a parent who was born overseas. So this is a rapidly changing country and Australian football is going to have to find its way in that changing world. "
