The Merenolitovina national football team is the football team which represents the Tellian autonomous territory of Merenolitovina. It is a member of the WMFA.

The team is seen as the spiritual successor of Ashkenatza in that the vast majority of its players originate from this nation's team, but it does not retain its records.

History

The team was founded in late 2013 after Merenolitovina applied successfully for FMF membership following Tellia's Micrasian claim being successful. In the following year's qualifiers, the team finished bottom of their group with three points after winning only one of their six matches.

In the 2015 qualifiers, the team finished second in their four-team group with nine points.

The 2016 Benacia Cup qualification rounds saw the team finish third in their six-team group with 15 points.

The team finished second in their four-team 2017 World Cup qualifying group with seven points.

The team competed in the 2018 Benacia Cup qualification rounds, where they topped their five-team group unbeaten with 22 points, and advanced to the finals to secure a first ever tournament appearance. In the Benacia Cup, the team finished second in their three-team group with two points and advanced to the semi-finals before losing to hosts Shireroth 3–1 and Tellia 4–1 to finish in fourth.

In the 2019 World Cup qualifiers, the team finished second in their six-team group with 23 points and advanced to the interconfederational play-off against Talenore, to whom they lost 3–1 on aggregate.
