History

New Vaduz applied successfully to join the FMF after the territory was founded by Craitland in 2007. The team competed in its first World Cup qualifiers the following year, where it finished second to Hamland in a group of six. In doing so, the team advanced to the play-offs, where they were beaten 4–2 by Bobalania.

In the following year's qualifiers, the team finished third out of five teams in their group.

In 2010, New Vaduz again finished third in their five-team qualifying group.

The team finished bottom of its group in the 2011 qualifiers, but finished only three points behind Taeland, who topped the table.

In 2012's qualifiers, the team finished third in their five-team group, one point behind Passas, and missed-out on the best third-placed team qualifying spot for EMU 2012 to Sirocco on goal difference.

The team's poor fortunes continued into the following year's qualifying, where they finished third in their five-team group, missing-out on a place at EMU 2013 by one point.

In 2014, the team finished second in their five-team qualifying group with 16 points and sealed a place in their first EMU Championships, where they could only finish bottom of their group with a point.

In the 2015 qualifiers, the team finished third in their five-team group with twelve points; one behind Austbard in the play-off place.

The qualifying rounds for EMU 2016 saw the team finish third in their four-team group with eight points.

The team's fortunes improved in the 2017 World Cup qualifiers, where they topped their four-team group with twelve points and sealed a place at their first World Cup finals. In their first World Cup, the team finished bottom of their group with a sole point to their name.

The team competed in the 2018 EMU Championships qualification rounds, where they finished second in their five-team group with 15 points to qualify for the finals ahead of Lostisland by virtue of goal difference. At EMU 2018, the team could only finish bottom of their group after losing all three matches and failing to score a goal.

In the 2019 World Cup qualifiers, the team finished second in their six-team group with 23 points and advanced to their second finals tournament.
