The Sudan national football team (Arabic: منتخب السودان الوطني لكرة القدم‎) represents Sudan in association football and is controlled by the Sudan Football Association, the governing body for football in Sudan. Sudan's home ground is Al Merreikh Stadium in Omdurman and their head coach is Mohammed Abdullah Mazda. Sudan were one of the only three teams to participate in the inaugural Africa Cup of Nations in 1957, the other two being Egypt and Ethiopia.

They won the 1970 Africa Cup of Nations as hosts. After beating Ethiopia 3–0, and a 1–0 defeat to Côte d'Ivoire, they secured a place in the semi-final by beating Cameroon 2–1. They overcame Egypt 2–1 after extra time in the semi-final, and won 1–0 against Ghana in the final to become African Champions. Sudan is one of the oldest teams in Africa and has a rich history in the past 50s to 70s. They went as high as 74 in the FIFA rankings. Sudan was the only East African team to qualify for the African Cup Of Nations 2012.
