The Réunion national football team (French: sélection de La Réunion de football) is the regional team of the French overseas department and region of Réunion and is controlled by the Ligue Réunionnaise de Football, local branch of the Federation Française de Football. Réunion is not a member of FIFA and is only an associate member of CAF, and is therefore not eligible to enter either the World Cup or the African Nations Cup. However, it has played numerous matches, most of them against the island nations of Madagascar, Mauritius, and the Seychelles.
