The Ropa-Topian Sports Alliance (abbreviation: RTSA) is a collaboration of the Uhuh-Topian Imperial Sports Association (ISA) and the Uhuh-Ropean Ministry of Sports.

There are several departments in the RTSA:


The Unity Stadium on the Isle of Uhm

The RTSA was founded in 1976 in order to show the world that there were no more conflicts between the peoples of both nations. Instead of competing against each other, sportsmen from Uhuh-Ropa and Uhuh-Topia form a unified team in any major sporting event outside Uhuhland.

In 1977 the RTSA received the green light to start building the Unity Stadium on the Island of Uhm, and construction of this major sports arena was finished in 1978. The Unity Stadium houses two sport fields and two sets of 6-lane athletics tracks, with a capacity of 72,000 spectators per field (144,000 total) since the stadium's renovation in 2120-2121. [1]

Department of Football

The Department of Football is the oldest department of the Ropa-Topian Sports Alliance, and used to be only involved with the national and amateur football leagues, until the formation of the Ropa-Topia national football team for a combined Uhuh-Topian and Uhuh-Ropean participation in World Cup 30.

Since then the team has participated in several World Cups (and affiliated tournaments like the Baptism of Fire and Cup of Harmony) and two Uhuhland Cups. The team used to share its players with the national teams of Uhuh-Topia and Uhuh-Ropa (those two teams only participated in competitions inside Uhuhland, but since the Third Uhuhland Cup, the Ropa-Topian team represents both Uhuh-Topia and Uhuh-Ropa even at competitions within Uhuhland.
