Lupe o le Soaga is a Samoan football club based in Tuanaimato. It currently plays in the Samoa National League.

History

Lupe o le Soaga played in the First Division, the second tier of the Samoa National League during the 2011–12 season where they finished runners-up to Vaimoso.[2] Apparently they were promoted as they then played in the 2012-13 Samoa National League, which they won, losing only once throughout the whole season.[3] They also won the Samoa Cup, defeating Kiwi 2–1 in the final.[3] Kiwi took the lead, but Lupe equalised with a penalty.[4] An additional twenty minutes extra time was played and in the second half of extra time Lupe scored the winner.[4] The Lupe ole Soaga women's team were runner's-up in the 2012–13 women's cup final.[4]

In the 2020 edition of the OFC Champions League they became the first team coming from the qualifying stage to win a group stage match.[5]
