New Technical Director Mr. Charles Vatu |
VFF President, Mr. Lambert Maltock on Friday welcomed Mr. Charles Vatu as new Technical Director to the Federation.

Charles Vatu might be new to the post, but he is not new to football in Vanuatu. He is well-known in the 90's for playing for Suva and Siaraga F.C. and scoring the first ever goal in a World Cup qualifying match to record his name in FIFA score books and Vanuatu football history.

Charles Vatu said he is happy with the new appointment and assured everyone that his priority now will be to revive the Melanesian Cup tournament which has been inactive for some years now.

The post is a 3-years contract and Charles will start on full-time after he finishes from his current job at Australian High Commission on 5th May 2010.

Some background information
Island: Pentecost
Clubs played: Siaraga F.C. - LFA, Siaraga F.C. - PVFA, Suva F.C. - Fiji
International appearance: World Cup qualifying match 1992 - Vanuatu Vs New Zealand.

Now VFF is awake so as Maltock. Give back some credibility to football in Vanuatu, the game most people love. Charles Vatu's appointment is timely so as other posts held by other people whose ambition is to get in for money and talk and bla bla bla bla with no action.

Hope we see where we have made mistakes and other pacific island ciountries are capitalising on to improve footbal in their respective countries.

Lets get football to every corner of Vanuatu and not in Port Vila alone, something VFF had failed misreably to achieve even when there big talks in the media.

Congratulations Charles and Good Luck
