    What big teams are there from Abkhazia? Are there many Abkhazian players in the Georgian national team and have the region formed any former big football stars?

    Not really a big star. But Ketsbaia comes to mind.

    None currently to speak of. The defunct FC Tskhumi Sukhumi appears to be historically the main club, playing in the old Soviet Second Division.

    Not many. None currently it seems. Here's what the corresponding Wikipedia categories provide:

    Giorgi Chikhradze 24 caps 1994-2000
    Zviad Jeladze 3 caps 1996-1998
    Mikheil Jishkariani 2 caps 1992-1994
    Temuri Ketsbaia (^) 49 caps 1992-2003
    Levan Mikadze 1 cap 2000
