The Sanama national football team is the football team which represents the micronation of Sanama. It is a member of the WMFA, and is run by the SFF.
The team is the official successor of Sanilla and Amarra, and as such retains its records.
The team was founded in mid-2019 after the foundation of Sanama as the successor state to Sanilla and Amarra. Soon afterwards, the team competed as hosts in the inaugural Vulture Cup, topping their group with seven points before beating the Unified Governorates on penalties and losing to Elwynn to finish as runners-up.
In the following year's Benacia Cup qualifiers, the team topped their four-team group unbeaten with 16 points and qualified for a first ever finals. In the finals, the team performed well and advanced from their group in second with five points before overcoming Elwynn in the semi-finals and Craitland in the final, both on penalties, to become WMFA champions for the first time.
Ahead of the 2021 World Cup qualifiers, in late 2020, the team entered the inaugural edition of the Raspur Pact Nations League and competed in its top tier, finishing top of their four-team group with nine points to advance to the knock-outs, where they ended in third after a loss and a win. In the qualifiers, the team's success continued as they won every match to finish top of their five-team group with 24 points to reach a first World Cup finals. In the finals, the team advanced from their group in second place with seven points, but were eliminated 2–1 in the play-off round by tournament débutants Meckelnburgh.
As reigning champions, Sanama qualified automatically for the 2022 Benacia Cup, which the nation subsequently won the rights to host, and also received a place in the year's FMF Confederations Cup, where they finished third in their group with nine points. At the Benacia Cup, they advanced from their group in second place with four points to reach the semi-finals where they lost 2–0 to eventual champions Craitland before overcoming the Unified Governorates 3–2 in the third-place play-off to place third overall on home soil.
