The Niue national football team is the national football team of Niue, controlled by the Niue Island Soccer Association. It is not a member of FIFA, but is an associate member of the OFC.[1] The team is therefore not eligible to enter the World Cup but may enter the OFC Nations Cup.[2]

Niue has so far played only two games – both at the 1983 South Pacific Games. A 0–19 loss to Papua New Guinea was followed by a 0–14 loss to Tahiti.
