Padania - County of Nice - Debrecen, 21 June, 2015.

The Padania representative football team is an unofficial football team promoted by football operators which claim it represents eight northern regions of Italy called Padania. The team is not a member of UEFA, nor is it affiliated with the Italian Football Federation. They have established the Lega Federale Calcio Padania.[1]

Padania had gained provisional membership of the NF-Board in 2008 and was able to take part in the 2008 VIVA World Cup along with Assyrian people, Iraqi Kurdistan, Provence and Sápmi, which they won beating the Assyrian people in the final by 2–0. Padania retained their crown when they hosted the 2009 finals, beating Kurdistan in the final. They defeated the Kurds again in 2010 to lift their third VIVA World Cup. Their non-appearance at the 2012 finals meant they didn't make it four consecutive titles. Now is a member of ConIFA.
