Today's Jersey official football team Talking Points
The Jersey official football team represents the island of Jersey in non-FIFA international football matches.
As the Jersey Football Association is not affiliated with either FIFA or UEFA, the Jersey official football team has previously been ineligible to take part in qualification for both the FIFA World Cup European Football Championship.
However, in December 2015 an application was submitted to UEFA to allow Jersey to take part in international matches, following on from Gibraltar's admission two years earlier. In October 2016, Jersey's bid to join UEFA was rejected, but this decision will be appealed in June 2017.
Jersey's main fixtures are currently the annual Muratti Vase against fellow Channel Islanders Alderney and Guernsey, as well as the biennial Island Games.Close
