The Chinese Taipei Football Association (CTFA) was founded in the Mainland China as the China Football Association (CFA) in 1924 and relocated to Taiwan in 1949 at the end of the Chinese Civil War. Affiliated with FIFA in 1932 as China, it rejoined FIFA in 1954, first under the name Taiwan, then Republic of China, and later Chinese Taipei.
The team's greatest success came when, playing as Taiwan, they finished third in the Asian Cup in 1960. However, the players in the team originally came from Hong Kong since the reputation of the Hong Kong national football team was not as good as the Republic of China.
The qualification match for 2012 AFC Challenge Cup in February 2011 was played on Kaohsiung National Stadium, while the qualification match for 2014 FIFA World Cup in July 2011 was played on Taipei Municipal Stadium.
