The Luxembourg national football team (nicknamed the Red Lions) is the national football team of Luxembourg, and is controlled by the Luxembourg Football Federation. The team plays most of its home matches at the Stade Josy Barthel in Luxembourg City.
Luxembourg played their first ever international match on 29 October 1911, in a friendly match against France; it resulted in a 1–4 defeat. Their first victory came on 8 February 1914, also in a match against France, which they won 5–4.
Luxembourg has never qualified for either the FIFA World Cup or the UEFA European Championship tournaments. The national side of Luxembourg did compete in six Olympic football events between 1920 and 1952, and advanced twice to the next round.
