History[edit]

The first match played by Saint Kitts and Nevis was away against Jamaica on 17 June 1979. Jamaica won 2-1 and also won the second leg in Saint Kitts and Nevis.

Saint Kitts and Nevis made a surprise run to the second round of CONCACAF qualifying for the 2006 FIFA World Cup, but was severely overmatched on that stage. Saint Kitts and Nevis finished second in the Caribbean Cup in 1997, and fourth in 1993.
