The Mongolia national football team (Mongolian: Монголын хөлбөмбөгийн үндэсний шигшээ баг) represents the Republic of Mongolia in international football under the Mongolian Football Federation.

Founded in 1959 the association was inactive between 1960 and 1998 when the team did not feature in any international fixtures. From the few games played since 1998, Mongolians have won only nine games played against five different nations within the AFC (four against Guam, two each against Macau and Northern Mariana Islands and one each against Myanmar and the Philippines). The Mongolian Football Federation is in the Asian Football Confederation and the East Asian Football Federation.

EAFF Suspension[edit]

According to the voting outcome at AFC Congress held in January 2011, the Mongolian Football Federation was suspended to conduct any activities at the EAFF until EAFF Ordinary Congress of March 2014.[3] They were welcomed back to the federation at The 7th Ordinary Congress and 41st & 42nd Executive Committee Meeting.[4]
