The Raetia football team (German: Fussballauswahl Raetia) represents Raetia in ConIFA association football. The current head coach is Simone Fontana. The team is commonly referred to as The Grisons.[1]

History[edit]

Raetia's first game was played in December 2011 against the Chagos Islands national football team.[2][3] The second game took place in January 2012 on the island of Gozo against Gozo.[4][5]

The first home game was on 26 May 2012 against the fifth Team of FC St. Pauli in Domat/Ems and Raetia won 6–0.

Raetia was qualified to play the 2012 VIVA World Cup in the northern Iraqi region of Kurdistan. In the group matches they gained a victory against Tamil Eelam and a loss to Zanzibar the 2nd rank and missed the semi-finals only because of goal difference.[6][7]

On 6 September 2015 Raetia beat Franconia 6–0 and qualified for the 2016 ConIFA World Football Cup in Abkhazia.

National anthem[edit]

The national anthem of Raetia is "A Tgalaveina":

Udis il clom en la vallada?
Si, si vus umens dils cumins!
La libertad el smanatschada,
Igl inimitg ei sils confins.

Refrain:
Fontana muoss'a nus la via atras
Ils flugs //dils battagliuns//.
Plitost la mort che sclaveria
Ei la parola dils Grischuns.
