History

The Lucerne FA was founded in 2012 after Mercurians first settled on Lucerne. In 2014, the Association was renamed the Fono le Lusa Vaetalo in a move to better reflect the local culture.

The Lucerne national football team have participated in the FMF World Cup qualification competition on two occasions, finishing bottom of their group both times. In 2013, Lucerne finished with no points and a goal difference of −51, including a world record 16–0 defeat to Novatainia.In 2014, the team's fortunes improved slightly, as they managed to gain one point with a draw against Beaulosagñe, but still finished with a goal difference of −48, scoring only one goal in the entire campaign.

In 2015, Lucerne will participate in the CTFA groups, after the team switched confederations as part of the FMF's reorganisation.

From mid-2017, the FLV's affiliate was renamed to Lusa, with the Lusa national football team continuing Lucerne's record.
