The Chinese Taipei national football team (Chinese: 中華台北男子足球代表隊; pinyin: Zhōnghuá táiběi nánzǐ zúqiú dàibiǎo duì) is the official name given by FIFA to the national association football team of the Republic of China (Taiwan, see Chinese Taipei for team naming issue).

It is a member of the Asian Football Confederation's East Asian Football Federation. Despite never qualifying for the FIFA World Cup, Taiwan reached the semi-finals of the 1960 and 1968 AFC Asian Cups, finishing third in the former. The side also won gold in the football sector at the 1954 and 1958 Asian Games.

History[edit]

The Chinese Taipei Football Association (CTFA) was founded in the Mainland China as the China Football Association (CFA) in 1924 and relocated to Taiwan in 1949 at the end of the Chinese Civil War. Affiliated with FIFA in 1932 as China, it rejoined FIFA in 1954, first under the name Taiwan, then Republic of China, and later Chinese Taipei.

The team's greatest success came when, playing as Taiwan, they finished third in the Asian Cup in 1960. However, the players in the team originally came from Hong Kong since the reputation of the Hong Kong national football team was not as good as the Republic of China.[2]

Due to the political conflict with People's Republic of China (China PR), Taiwan played in the OFC World Cup qualifying tournaments from 1975 to 1989.

Stadium[edit]

Many of the team's home matches were played in the Chungshan Soccer Stadium in Taipei, which was closed in 2008. The stadium's capacity was slightly above 20,000 and is a football specific stadium.

The qualification match for 2012 AFC Challenge Cup in February 2011 was played on Kaohsiung National Stadium, while the qualification match for 2014 FIFA World Cup in July 2011 was played on Taipei Municipal Stadium.
