The Daau national football team (Daau: Bola Pasukan Di Daau) is the football team which represents the micronation of Daau. The team is a member of the AEFA, and is run by the Daau Football Association.

History

The team was founded in mid-2022 after Daau's Micrasian claim was successful. Shortly afterwards, Daau organised the Daau Opening Tri-Nations Series, where they placed third of three after losing to Phinbella and drawing against Krasnovlac. Later in the year, Daau co-founded the Dauian-Mataba Cup and competed in the inaugural edition, where they beat Mataba 4–1 on aggregate.

The 2023 FMF World Cup qualification rounds, Daau's first competitive foray, saw the team finish second in their five-team group with 14 points. Shortly afterwards, they competed in and hosted the inaugural SEEFF Championship, winning the four-team knock-out tournament after a narrow final victory.

Chronological competitive participation

Kit

Daau's primary home colours are red and white, representing the nation's flag along with its logo, the star. The away kit is usually a mix of Daau's alternate colours of white and light red along with dark colours. Since 2023, the team's home kit has been all-red with a white sash, and the away kit white with a navy sash. Replica shirts include the logo of DaauElectric, being the first sponsor on the Dauian national kit.

Crest

The national team's crest is based on the "One-Star" motif originally made for the then-Daau Football Federation representative team with a slightly modern twist. The stylized rounded star was replaced by the original star as seen on Daau's flag and other propaganda material. It is considered a symbol of power and glory. The crest also originally had a small crown at the top but it was quickly removed due to an uproar of anti-Kozzakan sentiment at the time.

Stadiums

The national team plays its games in the Daau National Stadium, located in Daas-Bedok, since its establishment. Originally designed for both the national team and league teams, the Daau National Stadium is home to Daau Super League side Bintang Lukana and Daau League side Xiamen CFFC as well as the national team. The stadium features a 45,000 seating capacity with a rapid transit station and small shops for food and merchandise.

The Daas-Bedok Stadium and Semkang Payoh Stadium may also be used for national team matches.

Fans

River Boys in full swing.

Fans of the national team are usually made up of casuals who watch the team for fun or with a group of friends as the pricing for home games is usually rather cheap and the stadium is close to Seragaan. Most of the time, however, traveling fans are a rare sight as most fans find it hard to pay for the costs of travel and hotel fees to watch the team.

River Boys

The River Boys or Boys of River are the main, and sole officially recognized, supporters' group of the national team. The group is the best representation of hardcore fans of the national team. They regularly sing loudly and chant in unison during games in an effort to lift the team's spirit and guide the players to a win. The River Boys are best known for their enthusiastic behavior and use of flares during big games and derbies. Their chant "Hidup Mati Daau" was voted the best chant in Dauian football in a 2022 poll. Despite appearances, the River Boys are traditionally less violent and more welcoming than many other supporter groups in Daau.

Rivalries

Daau has a rather small number of rivalries, and most are considered as such due to the proximity between Daau and the other country.

Krasnovlac

Daau and Krasnovlac have a traditional rivalry between two nations due to their citizens seeing each other as a "brother country" due to shared cultural ties. The derby is known as the "River Derby" after the river that separates the two countries in some parts. Games between the pair are usually well attended and are regularly full of energetic fans. There have been no instances of fighting recorded between the fans of Daau and Krasnovlac due to their good relations with each other.

Media coverage

All Daau national team matches are streamed domestically by CloviSports and are usually broadcasted for free on live television across Daau.
