The Artsakh national football team (Armenian: Արցախի ֆուտբոլի հավաքական) is the national representative of the Republic of Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh), which is internationally unrecognized. Consequently, it is not a member of FIFA or UEFA and is therefore not eligible to enter the World Cup or the European Championship.
On 17 September 2012 they became a provisional member of the N.F.-Board and a week later played their first competitive match away against Abkhazia. The following month they played the return match at home against Abkhazia. Their first competitive competition was the ConIFA World Football Cup which took place in Östersund, Sweden. The Association of Football Federations of Azerbaijan failed to stop their participating in the competition after contacting ConIFA. ConIFA refused to revoke their invitation and Artsakh finished 9th overall after loses to Ellan Vannin, Nice and wins against Darfur and Sapmi.
