San Marino women's national football team does not have FIFA recognition and has not played a single FIFA recognised match. The creation of a national team may be problematic as the sport is not the most popular one in the country, and the national football association does not have a full-time staff member working on the sport.


In 1985, almost no country in the world had a women's national football team,[1] including San Marino who did not have a FIFA recognised senior A team or youth team by 2006.[2] A team from the country has never competed at the Women's World Cup.[3] Between 1900 and May 2012, the team did not play in a single FIFA sanctioned match.[4] In March 2012, a team from the country was not ranked in FIFA's global women's ranking.[5]

Background and development

Football is the fourth most popular women's sport in the country, behind volleyball which is the most popular.[2] In 2006, there were 65 total registered female footballers in the country, 48 of which were senior players over 17 years of age.[2] That year, there were 16 football clubs in the country, only one of which was open to women to play on mixed gender teams.[2]

Women's football is represented in Federazione Sammarinese Gioco Calcio, the national football association, by specific mandate. They do not have a full-time staffer dedicated to women's football.[2] Less than 5% of the national federation's budget is earmarked for women's football compared to 22% for men's competitions and 9% for youth competitions.[6] In 2009, Caesar Biordi was in charge of women's football in the country.[7]
