The Florian Republic national football team is the football team which represents the micronation of the Florian Republic. It is a member of the AEFA, and is run by the Florian Football Association.

History

The team was founded in 2017 after the Florian Republic's Micrasian claim was successful. Later in the year, the team competed in the inaugural Devon Shield, where they finished in third place after losing 2–0 to Vyktory in the fourth round.

The team competed, after winning the Florian Peace Cup, in the 2018 Copa Apollonia qualification rounds, where they finished second in their six-team group with 21 points to advance to the playoffs, where they beat Arboria 6–1 on aggregate to qualify for their first finals. At the Copa Apollonia, the team performed well and topped their four-team group unbeaten with seven points before losing to Senya 2–0 in the semi-finals, but beat Lamantia 1–0 to secure third place.

In the 2019 World Cup qualifiers, the team went unbeaten as they topped their five-team group with 22 points and qualified for their first ever FMF World Cup finals. The team's good form continued into the finals, as they advanced from their group in second place with seven points and defeated Shireroth on penalties in the play-off round before heavily losing to Senya in the quarter-finals.
