The Gaia national football team was the football team which represented the CIS constituent nation of Gaia. It was a founding member of both the FMF and AEFA, and was run by the FGGC. The team is the official predecessor of Tellia.

History

Gaia was one of the founding members of the FMF when the organisation was created in October 2006 prior to the first FMF World Cup. The national team competed in the tournament, topping their three-team group with four points before beating Riponia 2–1 in the quarter-finals. After beating Nova England on penalties in the semi-finals to reach the final, the team was beaten by Beaugium 1–0 to finish second.

Due to Beaugium's revocation of its Micrasian land claims, Gaia were granted the automatic holders' place in the 2007 FMF World Cup as 2006 runners-up. After advancing from their group with six points, and again beating Riponia in the quarter-finals, this time on penalties, the team was well-beaten by co-hosts Tokidoki in the semi-finals before losing the third-place play-off to Passas. Gaia left the CIS and was succeeded by Tellia in late 2007.
