The Monaco national football team is a national side that represents Monaco in association football. The team is controlled by the Monegasque Football Federation, the governing body for all football in Monaco. Monaco is not a member of the FIFA or the UEFA, and does not participate in any of their international tournaments. Monaco was a founding member of the N.F.-Board in 2003, and finished second in the 2006 VIVA World Cup inaugural edition. However, due to political opposition, Monaco severed ties with the organization in 2010.[2]

Overview[edit]

Since 2001, Monaco has participated in twenty-seven games, winning eight, drawing six, and losing thirteen. The team competes against local clubs, nations, non-recognized states, people groups, and territories. Monaco is managed by Martino Lopez, and competes at the Stade des Moneghetti in Cap-d'Ail, France.[3] According to Elo Ratings, Monaco is ranked 216th in the world.[1]

The team's roster is composed of roughly sixty men; only five offer professional experience.[4]
