The Ellan Vannin Football Team, is a football team that represents the Isle of Man. They are not affiliated with FIFA or UEFA (AFC), and therefore cannot compete for the FIFA World Cup or the UEFA European Championships.

They competed first at the ConIFA World Football Cup in 2014 where they won their group and became runners up to the County of Nice.[1]

History[edit]

Formed in 2013, Ellan Vannin was created by the newly formed Manx International Football Alliance (MIFA) in order to enter ConIFA and compete at the ConIFA World Football Cup. As opposed to the official Isle of Man team (run by the Isle of Man FA), which is comprised entirely of Isle of Man Football League players – regardless of nationality, Ellan Vannin will allow only those with Manx ties to play for them, in line with FIFA eligibility rules.

Following the signing of a memorandum of understanding between the MIFA and Isle of Man FA, intended to set out a working relationship between the two organisations, the MIFA announced that the first international to be played by Ellan Vannin would be a home game against Monaco on 6 April 2014, to be played at The Bowl in Douglas.[2] Ellan Vannin won their first international 10–0.[3]
