Just like all of the other inhabited continents, Oceania has a love of sport. Similar to the Olympics or the Commonwealth Games, the Pacific Games are held every four years and all nations within Oceania (except for Australia and New Zealand) take part. The Oceania Football Confederation comes under the umbrella of FIFA and is the means for qualification to the World Cup. Cricket is popular in the region and Australia is historically the most successful of all nations at that sport. Australia is also the most successful team in Rugby League (having won the World Cup a record 10 times) and it is the national sport of Papua New Guinea. The national sport in New Zealand, Samoa, Fiji and Tonga is Rugby Union and Australian Rules Football is popular all over Oceania, though it has failed to gain popularity elsewhere.
