The Calbion national football team is the football team which currently represents the Jingdaoese autonomous territory of Calbion, and previously represented the Brettish autonomous territory and independent nation of the same name. It is a member of the CTFA, and is run by the CFA.

The team has existed twice in the FMF's history; firstly in 2013 as an autonomous territory of Jingdao, and secondly since early 2014 as an autonomous territory of the Brettish Isles, independently and in its current form.

History

Calbion applied successfully to join the FMF after the territory was founded by Jingdao in early 2013. Calbion was dissolved later in the year and the national team was integrated into the Jingdaoese side. Calbion was reëstablished as an autonomous territory of the Brettish Isles in early 2014 and the team rejoined the FMF.

In their first qualifiers, the team finished second in their five-team group with twelve points, behind North Antarctica and missing-out on qualifying on goal difference. Later in the year, the team competed in the inaugural Lions Cup, which they won after winning all six of their group games comfortably. Soon afterwards, Calbion gained independence after seceding from the Brettish Isles.

In 2016, Calbion successfully bid to host the year's CiboTap, qualifying automatically as a result, and instead competed in the inaugural FMF Confederations Cup, where they advanced from their group with eight points before losing to Mercury and Hamland to place fourth. In CiboTap 2016, Calbion advanced from their group with two wins before being well-beaten by Alexandria 4–1 in the semi-finals. However, the team overcame Zandarijn 2–1 in the third-place play-off to finish third in their first finals.

In 2017, prior to the completion of the year's qualifying rounds, Calbion was annexed by Jingdao. In the qualifiers, the team finished top of their five-team group without losing a game and advanced to their first World Cup finals, where they gained four points as they finished fourth in their group.
