Comoros joined the Confederation of African Football in 2003 following the formation of the Fédération Comorienne de Football, the national football association, in 1979. Comoros were accepted as full members of FIFA in 2005.[1]

Following accession to FIFA's full member status, the Comoros national football team has competed for entry to the African Cup of Nations and World Cup since 2010; its qualifying campaigns for both competitions were unsuccessful.

At the highest level, the country's domestic competition consists of the Comoros Premier League and the Comoros Cup. Coin Nord is the country's most decorated club, having won the league title on six occasions.[2][3]
