List of non-national representative teams in men's football

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of the men's national, regional, islanders and people association football teams in the world not registered with FIFA or any of their regional confederations. All teams listed have played at least once against a non-club team from another sovereign nation.

Criteria for inclusion[edit]

This is a summary of the criteria for inclusion in the article.

  1. Club teams, even if they bear the name of a region, island or ethnic group, and even if they have a policy of only employing players from such a group, are not suitable for inclusion in this list. Club sides are those between which players can move at will (subject to contract).
  2. Teams listed here should not ordinarily be the holders of registration for their players, and players should usually (unless out of contract or semi-retired) play for such teams in addition to their club commitments.
  3. Team must be member of a non-representative football organization or there must be verifiable evidence of fixtures against teams of a similar level beyond the boundaries of their own sovereign nation.
  4. Teams are members of neither FIFA nor a FIFA-affiliated confederation. Those sides are all listed at List of men's national association football teams.

Organizations[edit]

There are some organizations with the objective of organizing football among these teams.[1] Some of them are listed below.

  • NF-Board New Federations Board: a football association established in 2003. It is made up of teams that represent nations that are not recognized as sovereign states and which are therefore not eligible to become members of FIFA, football's world governing body. The NF-Board organises the VIVA World Cup and the UNPO Cup. CSANF is its first continental confederation, for South America.
  • CONIFA this new international board is a federation of football associations established in 2013. It is made up of teams that represent nations, dependencies, unrecognized states, minorities, stateless peoples, regions and micronations not affiliated to FIFA.
  • IGA Island Games Association: formed in 1985, this is an organization with the sole purpose to organise the Island Games, a friendly biennial athletic competition (including football) between teams from several islands and other small territories.

  • Bantustans – Some parts of South Africa, in line with the past apartheid policy of self-government for each ethnic group, had by this time been partitioned off into quasi-independent "homelands". Some of these areas, namely Bophuthatswana, Transkei, Venda... had their own football associations. Bophuthatswana was the only homeland to set up an independent football structure and to attempt to obtain independent FIFA membership, creating a football association (FABO) and league (BOPSOL).[109] The Transkei Football Association had also a professional wing. There must have been "international" football matches between these "independent" or "self-government" countries[110]

The Europeada is the football European youth championship of the linguistic (autochthonous) minorities which is organised by the federalistic union of European ethnic groups (FUEV) in cooperation with the minority host for the respective tournament. The first Europeada took place in the approach of the European championship of UEFA in 2008 with the Rätoromanen in the canton to grey alliances in Switzerland. The inhabitants of South Tirol won the finale at that time against the Croatian minority in Serbia with 1:0. The Europeada in 2012 took place from the 16th to the 24th of June, 2012 in parallel with the football European championship in 2012. Organizers were in 2012 the Sorben in Oberlausitz (Saxony). The German-speaking minority of South Tyrol won the final against the Roma from Hungary with 3:1.
