The Tiana national football team, known domestically as the Tiana national soccer team, is the football team which represents the micronation of Tiana. It is a member of the AEFA, after originally being affiliated to the EMUFA, and is run by the TFSF.
The team has existed twice in the FMF's history; firstly between early and late 2011, and secondly since early 2012.
The team was founded in early 2011 after Tiana's Micrasian claim was successful. The team was entered into the qualifiers for the 2011 FMF World Cup, where they finished bottom of their group after losing all six games.
Tiana was removed from Micras in late 2011 but reclaimed its land at the beginning of 2012, with the Tianan national team gaining FMF membership for the second time in doing so. The team competed in the year's World Cup qualifying, finishing fourth in their five-team group with eight points, below Juclandia on goal difference.
In the following year's qualifiers, the team managed to finish second in their four-team group with eleven points and qualified for EMU 2013. Following qualifying, the team competed in the second Senyan School International Tournament, where, after advancing from their group, behind Amokolia on goal difference, and losing their semi-final, they won the third-place play-off against Afrikaana. In EMU 2013, the team finished bottom of their three-team group after losing both of their matches. Soon afterwards, the team resigned their EMUFA membership in favour of that of the AEFA. In late 2013, the team also hosted and competed in the inaugural Tianan Challenge Cup, where they topped the five-team group with nine points before beating Senya 1–0 in the final.
