The River Warriors national football team was the football team which most recently represented the Kildarian autonomous region of the River Warriors, and previously represented the Senyan, Jexitese, Jingdaoese and Great Apollonian autonomous regions, and Apollonian and Jingdaoese constituent nations of the same name. It was a member of the AEFA, and was run by FARWT.
The team was founded in 2012 after the River Warriors was granted increased autonomy from Senya. Later in the year, the team competed in the inaugural Senyan School International Tournament, where they finished last in the six-team tournament after losing all their games.
In their first qualifying campaign, the team finished bottom of their group after losing all eight of their matches. Following qualifying, the River Warriors co-hosted the second Senyan School International Tournament, but the team finished bottom of their three-team group after being well-beaten in both of their matches.
The team finished bottom of their six-team group in the 2014 qualifiers with two points. Later in the year, the team competed in the first Apollonian Cup, where they finished in fourth place after losing their three matches. Shortly after, the team also entered the inaugural Emerging Nations Cup, where they won their semi-final and final matches to secure a first ever title.
The River Warriors was annexed by the Apollonian Confederation in early 2015, before becoming part of Jingdao later in the year, but retained its separate FMF membership. In the year's qualifiers, the team finished bottom of their five-team group with only one point to their name. Later in the year, the team competed in the second Emerging Nations Cup, which they also hosted, where they finished third thanks to a record win over the Franklin Islands.
The 2016 Copa Apollonia qualification rounds saw the team finish third in their five-team group with nine points. Later in the year, the River Warriors became an autonomous territory of Jexit following its independence from Jingdao, before being re-annexed by Jingdao soon afterwards.
The team finished third in their four-team 2017 World Cup qualifying group with six points.
In the following year's Copa Apollonia qualifiers, the team finished fifth in their six-team group with five points. The team later competed in the 2020 Noka Cup, where they finished third in their group with three points.
In the 2021 FMF World Cup qualification rounds, the team finished fourth in their five-team group with eleven points. Later in the year, the River Warriors became an autonomous region of Great Apollonia, after Jingdao joined with Çakaristan, and retained its separate FMF membership.
In early 2022, prior to the start of the year's Copa Apollonia qualifiers, the River Warriors became an autonomous region of the newly-independent Kildare. In the qualifiers themselves, the team finished second in their five-team group with 16 points, ahead of Arboria by virtue of goal difference. Shortly afterwards, the River Warriors were annexed by Shireroth as part of its annexation of Kildare, and the national team was integrated into Shireroth's.
