    Swaziland and Lesotho have had national teams (and competed in the world cup) for years.

    Monaco doesn't have a national team.

    Although not affiliated with FIFA at this time, Monaco does have a NT and will compete in the alternative World Cup in 2006.

    The Scottisch scientists at a UK-lead scientific station in Antarctica have an amateur team. Antarctica even has its first pin-up now, she's "exposing" herself at :eek: :cool:

    I am not sure if St-Helena (+ dependencies Tristan Da Cunha and Ascension Island) have a national team competing in non-FIFA competitions.

    Aland Islands also have a national side that will compete in the alternative World Cup 2006. They also hope to affiliate to FIFA and UEFA soon, but apparently Finland doesn't like the idea of a seperate Aland side.

    This thread makes me laugh.

    From wikipedia

    National football teams not affiliated to FIFA:

    Åland Islands | Alderney | Basque Country | Catalonia | Christmas Island | Cocos (Keeling) Islands | Falkland Islands | French Guiana 1 | Gibraltar | Greenland | Guadeloupe 1 | Guernsey | Isle of Man | Jersey | Kiribati | Kosovo | Marshall Islands | Martinique 1 | Mayotte | Micronesia | Monaco | Nauru | Niue | Northern Cyprus | Northern Mariana Islands | Palau | Republic of Srpska | Réunion | Saint Helena | Saint-Martin 1 | Saint-Pierre and Miquelon | Sápmi | Sark | Shetland Islands | Sint Maarten 1 | Tibet | Tokelau | Tuvalu | Vatican City | Wallis and Futuna | Western Sahara | Zanzibar

    A Vatican City team - now that's just plain funny. I'm imagining the team jerseys - and the supporters group section. Hilarious...

    Going to a Vatican game would be awful. All those hats would get in the way.

    Puerto Rico is a "commonwealth" of the USA. Many just argue that it's basically just a buffer and the truth is that it's a colony but whatever that's another topic.

    It's sad that de PR NT sucks so much. I'd love to be able to root for my country in a World Cup. We now have a team called the Islanders. They play in one of the smaller American leagues if I recall. Diego Maradona's brother manages the club.

    It's weird though because basketball and baseball are definetely the two biggest sports but if you live around the metro area you see just as many or even more soccer jerseys then baseball or basketball jerseys. Mostly Boca Jr's, River Plate, and Real Madrid but really from all around.
