The Cayman Islands, though not an independent nation, has its own soccer (football) team, which belongs to the CONCACAF. The team is not particularly good, as its best finish has been 4th place in the 1995 Caribbean Cup, and it has never qualified for the World Cup or Gold Cup.

George Town is much more suited to leisure activities and water sports. Caymanian fishermen are particularly good at what they do, and fishing is such a large part of the culture that the entire month of June is one long fishing tournament, open to locals and visitors alike. Blue marlin, yellow fin tuna and dolphinfish are particularly plentiful in these waters in the late spring and early summer. No licenses are required to fish, but you may only fish within certain zones that are marked in booklets available on the island. Bayside Watersports can rent you a small boat, or you can go with a large cruise such as Just Fish’n.

Golfing is also a popular activity among tourists. The Links Golf Course at Safehaven is located in North Sound on West Bay Road, the Britannia is on the Hyatt Regency grounds, and the Sunrise Family Golf Course is located just outside of George Town. The first two are 18-hole courses and the last has 9 holes.
