The Alderney official football team is the official football team for Alderney, the third largest of the Channel Islands and they play their home matches at Arsenal Ground (Mount Hale) They are not affiliated with FIFA or UEFA.

The team plays in the Muratti Vase Cup, a cup competition started in 1905, in which the Channel Islands of Alderney, Guernsey and Jersey play against each other. Alderney have only won the competition once, in 1920. The Muratti format requires Alderney to play a semi-final match against the other islands on a rota basis but always with Alderney being the home side. The winner of the match goes on to play the remaining island in the final. Alderney also play the occasional game outside the Muratti competition including taking part in the Island Games football tournament in 2003 in which they finished a creditable 12th out of a pool of 15.[2]
