The Fifi Wild Cup - hosted by St Pauli

The Fifi Wild Cup Final, staged in Hamburg before a crowd of 4,122, was won by North Cyprus on penalties after a hotly contested goalless draw against Zanzibar. The two teams had overcome opposition from Gibraltar, Tibet, Greenland and the infant nation state of St Pauli to reach the final.

The competition, open only to regions that aren't recognised as independent countries by either the UN or Fifa, snowballed from a request from Tibet to play a friendly match against St Pauli. If you're wracking your brains to remember exactly which South Pacific atoll St Pauli occupies, don't. It's the district of Hamburg that is home to the city's Reeperbahn red light district, and it declared independence specially for the tournament.
