The Reindeer Herders national football team was the football team which most recently represented the micronation of the Reindeer Herders, and previously represented the Cerulean autonomous region of the same name. It was a member of the EMUFA.

The team existed three times in the FMF's history; firstly in 2008 as an independent nation, secondly in 2009 as an autonomous region of Cerulea, and thirdly between late 2014 and mid-2015, again independently.

History

The team was founded in early 2008 after the Reindeer Herders' Micrasian claim was successful. The team competed in that year's World Cup qualifiers, finishing bottom of their six-team group with two points. The Reindeer Herders left Micras later in the year.

In early 2009, the Reindeer Herders returned to Micras as an autonomous region of Cerulea. Despite again leaving Micras soon afterwards, the team were permitted to compete in the year's qualifiers with a forfeited three-point deduction. The team finished bottom of their group, finishing with minus two points after only drawing one match, before leaving the FMF.

In late 2014, the Reindeer Herders once again returned to Micras as an independent nation. In their first qualifiers since returning, the team could only finish bottom of their group with a sole point after drawing just one of their eight games. The Reindeer Herders left Micras once more in mid-2015.
